2012DA14stargazing

Hunting the asteroid 2012 DA14 during its closest approach on February 16, 2013 at the Manila Observatory, with fellow members of the Philippine Astronomical Society (PAS), Edward Von Delelis and Kashogi Astapan, along with observers from the Ateneo de Manila University. We were able to observe the magnitude 7 asteroid as it zooms past Earth both visually and photographically using a 4-inch f/9 refractor and a 40 mm eyepiece. Tracking was done manually using an 8×50 finderscope and the slow-motion controls of a Kenko NES mount. For previous observations, click here.
