Likely an asteroid, name?

Probably an asteroid, no direct link to JPL and kind of forgot how to do it manually, remember it could be quite a hassle to do it correctly

Yeah, for DECaPS2 we don’t have the original CCDs (or the metadata file) so it’s pretty hard to trace back asteroids. You could try searching the NOIRLab Astro Data Archive on RA,Dec position, and fill in the JPL query by hand for each overlapping exposure in the g,r bands. Time-consuming though!

I’ve done that manually before you provided the direct links.

Indeed time-consuming but above all I remember a lot of failed queries per asteroid until everything was set to perfect

Not worth the effort anymore :tired_face:

Thanks :slight_smile:
