(55) Pandora occults 2UCAC 43777459 for 6.6 sec

Back to Positives

The event was recorded with PC164EX2. I had to grab the tripod with the telescope and move it a couple of meters 3 min before the event to avoid my neighbour's roof. Luckily there was a bright star just next to the field so I could locate the field just on time and the disruption of the tracking wasn't too big either. Lots of luck.
