DescriptionEarly September this year, asteriod (2309) Mr. Spock, a small body of 21 km diameter in the main asteroid belt between Mars an Jupiter came into line of sight with the galaxy NGC 7600.
The total exposure times were:
L: 167 × 90s
R: 109 x 30s
G: 107 x 40s
B: 69 x 50s
The nine images of Mr. Spock were seperated by 30 minutes each.
I don't know how Mr. Spock would have evaluated this encounter, but for my part - I found it "fascinating" ... ;=}
