Details:
Photo-bombed by two solar system interlopers. I have been collecting data over a series of nights for a portrait of the Leo Galaxy Triplet. Little did I realize until after the fact that asteroid 121 Hermione and faint periodic comet 74P Smirnova-Chernykh were also in the field of view. I created a GIF file blinking between the field of view on May 8 and on May 9, 2018. Each evening consists of a 6x11min stack of lights with corresponding darks, flats, and bias frames. The image was recorded using a Stellarvue 102ED refractor and a modified Canon XS DSLR, ISO800.
