Faintest recovery to date – 2005 TY51

Under very challenging conditions (a near full moon), D21 Shenton Park recovers 2005 TY51. Recovered by us initially on August 28th, we had to wait through bad weather until September 3rd to confirm our observations. Fortunately most stations are ‘closed for full moon’ and we were lucky to secure the second night’s observations and the subsequent recovery despite intermittent cloud. At magnitude 20.2, this is our faintest recovery to date.

Thanks as always to our Tenagra collaboration, and Paulo’s uncanny skills.
