No, I think it is Sarah Mac, once again on the IRC, foot in mouth
disease. SHE said the CCD was limited to 14.7.
(SteveH) Bobs, the scope used for these images was only 11.8"
(Lace) Arnies Mewlon on a Paramount
(Lace) Scope, $14,000, mount, $13,000, camera $6,000
(Lace) 12" Tak Mewlon 300 on a Paramount
(Lace) Arnie Rosner's Tak
(Lace) Nancy, even in Arinie's Tak, you can visibly see mag15
(Lace) Limiting magnitude for that instrument is 14.7 <==========
So Sarah WRONG Again!
And if it is Sarah Macs claim that the object circled as a Moon is
asteroid 2001 KS14, then where is her calculations? According to the
MPC, 2001 KS14
FOR THAT DATE AND HOUR ON JAN 10TH WAS AT
RA 04 21 08.8 Dec +11 57 10
You will note that the
COORDINATES FOR JAN 13TH ARE
RA 04 21 44 Dec 12 07 10
And the object under discussion as a spot A on Cunninghams images is
ABOVE the Jan 13th coordinates,
would have a higher Dec, and to the
LEFT of the Jan 13th spot,
having a higher RA.
Oops! David Cantu WRONG Again!
I processed (only with the dark) a sum and a median image. I'm so
glad to see on Jan 10 images the first undoubtful moving object!
It is "A" on the Cunningham image and it looks like an asteroid.
