A three-minute observation of 2020 SW when it passed 54.5 arcminutes south of Algenib (Gamma Pegasi). Winds were gusting and the asteroid's track is barely visible above the noise, but not a bad achievement for a 110mm f/4 instrument with an IMX224 sensor! The fuzzy patch at 1 o'clock is UGC 119, a magnitude +14.3 spiral galaxy in Pegasus.
