2014 JO25 from Paris
1

Hello, I was trying my star adventurer mount on M51 and I did a try to 2014 JO25 too but I only did 3 photos, I should have done a lot more but due to the weather conditions (some clouds and wind) and my awfull light polluted sky (from Paris) I didnt believe that I could catch it. I was wrong, so here the result even if it is not that good.

The photos below are single frame without stacking (as I did only 3 photos). The first is a 100% crop of a RAW at ISO 4000, I discovered 2014-JO25 as a little trait. Then I PP the 3 RAW in DxO and I did a 100% crop to show the movement of the asteroid.

From Paris with a Sony A7S (RAW) + Tamron 150-600 at 150mm with a shutter speed of 25s at ISO 4000 : crop scale 100% ; 2014-JO25 appears as a little trait ; as you can see the sky is really bad

From Paris with a Sony A7S + Tamron 150-600 at 150mm with a shutter speed of 25s at ISO 4000 : crop scale 100% ; 2014-JO25 movement in the sky
