|During our seven live sessions on the
Faulkes Telescope, we targeted five objects whose orbits took them
close to the Earth. Four of them we imaged successfully, obtaining
three images about two minutes apart in a single 30 minute session.
The three images and an animated GIF showing the movement across a fixed star field are shown for each NEO target.
One example is shown below.

imaged 18 deep sky objects during our live sessions, some of them had
to be duplicated as our images were ruined by the group in control of
the telescope during the session immediately preceeding ours. On at
least two occasions, these groups decided to end their sessions with an
attempt to image a planet or a bright star using exposure times several
hundred times longer than the minimum recommended time. This resulted
in oversaturation of some of the pixels on the telescope camera's CCD
chip. The outcome of this was a light coloured streak running
vertically through our images.
