recorded a miss (Toronto)

Unofficially, I video-recorded a miss of the occultation of star TYC 0164-01394-1u by asteroid (157070) 2003 SG307 at the predicted time of 10:16 PM EST. I was not expecting a hit being 57 kilometres from the centre-line. But, as a low rank (1) event, anything could happen.

This evening was more about refining my recent discoveries on the StellaCam3. It was my first completely successful run with Denis's occultation rig.

I have yet to review the video tape and reduce data. But, at this stage, it looks promising.
