100th Asteroid for the ISON-NM observatory

At our observatory our 100th asteroid has been discovered!  It is an ordinary main-belt asteroid which received the designation 2010 XU12. The asteroid was discovered in the course of our “record” survey of December 2nd, in which we found 139 objects!  There were 3196 measurements made in one night.

Our survey program is moving to a new level, completely changing over to automatic discovery of moving objects. In this lunation, a new program was generated and installed – CLT, developed by a Ukrainian group of programmers. We are sure that the new year will bring us many interesting discoveries!
