Just starting with astrophotography I wondered if it would be possible to catch 2004BL86 on it’s flyby with some basic equipment. Between the clouds there was an opening which made it possible to make 14 exposures of 30 s of the region where 2004BL86 should be. After processing with StarTrails…maybe beginners luck…but there it was!
