Minor planet 44 Nysa passes within 2' of Iota Cap.
« on: 22:03:10, 31 August, 2005 »
I found this on the SKy & Telescope site:

Thurs 1st Sept: The asteroid 44 Nysa (magnitude 10.8) is passing just 2 arcminutes south of Iota Capricorni tonight.

This looks like a opportunity to get an minor planet. It's at the limit of my set-up. On a good night I've got stars of mag 10.6 . But it might be worth a try.

Clear skies!
