Asteroid 93 Minerva lightcurve measured in Taurus Hill Observatory.

Posted by & filed under , .

Veli-Pekka Hentunen measured the lightcurve of the asteroid 93 Minerva in Taurus Hill Observatory 24.-25.12.2006 23:00-05:00. Veli-Pekka used R -filter and 120 sec. exposure (per picture) for photometric measurements. The comparison stars used in this measurement were GSC1423-528 (C1) and GSC1423-568 (C2).  The weather was damp and little foggy. Due this and the fact that the correction lens of the telescope got little ice on it, the dispersion of the measurement is higher than it could be in best case scenario.
