    Hi Marco,
    
    We started our asteroid program at IAU 649 (Powell Observatory) using other software, but we greatly increased 
    our productivity by using Astrometrica. Once the parameters are set correctly image field matching is usually 
    automagic.
    
    I have had to curtail asteroid work because of family considerations but it was a very rewarding experience.
    
    Sincerely,
    
    Richard Fredrick
