Description

Was imaging the Leo Triplet when I noticed this slowly moving object right next to M66. Upon closer inspection it seems to be 394 Arduina, a main belt asteroid: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/394_Arduina

The whole image series took around 4 hours and the magnitude of the asteroid is supposedly 14.9
