This was my first successful observation of an asteroid occultation - and it turned out to be a big one as well, lasting over 13 seconds. I have only recently started this type of observing activity and previously had three 'miss' no occultation events and one clouded out.     The picture is a compilation of data gathered and identifying the correct star from Astromety Net.

Congrats on capturing your first asteroid occultation, Peter. Nice work!

Hopefully many more to come.

All the best,
