Most of the luminance images where exposed in 2010. They were the only usable results of the new camera before the cooler died and the camera was sent back to repair.

In the upper left region of the image a minor planet trace is visible. It is No. 29229 = 1992 EE1 (17,0mag), discovered  by the Japanese Atsushi Sugie.



Die Luminanz-Belichtungen entstanden zu großen Teilen bereits 2010 und waren das einzige verwertbare Ergebnis vor dem Kühlerausfall und der Reparatur der STX-16803.

Links oben im Bild zieht ein Kleinplanet seine Spur. Es ist Planetoid 29229 = 1992 EE1 (17,0mag), entdeckt von dem Japaner Atsushi Sugie.
