Minor planets astrometry

Starting with end of 2015 I will do also minor planet astrometry using my observatory. Since the limiting magnitude of my equipment is not very low I hope I would be able to contribute with some measurements in this field next to the much older neglected double star astrometry activity. More details here in the nearest future after much observations will be realised. I will use Astrometrica software to reduce the imaged fields.  Until now some tests was made and also a few already known asteroids was measured.

In paralel I work in different EURONEAR projects which are exclusively oriented to the minor planet study, but which are not based on observations from my observatory.
