Work done by Paul Camillery showing some of the interesting observations that were done at Blue Mountains Observatory.
Data obtained on 13th March 2013:
"I found very faint images of an main belt asteroid 2013 CX71 which was discovered in February with pre-discovery images dating back to early January from the SpaceWatch survey in the USA.
The orbital arc for this one was 32days and with our observational data from March 13th  extended it out to 62days."
Just one of the examples where Paul has expertly retrieved the faintest of asteroids found in the data obtained from BMO asteroid photometry studies.
