Asteroid Cohnia

Asteroid Cohnia (almost) passes in front of a 13.5 magnitude star. I think I was just barely out of the occulation path. It was a good practice run, although much brighter objects would allow short exposures to determine the actual start and end times of the occulation. The asteroid at a magnitude of 14.7 and the star at 13.5 are much too dim for my setup for accurate timings.

Taken with the 80 mm refractor with Luminance filter over about 30 minutes of time.
