    0.37-meter F/14 Cassegrain + CCD, Winer Obs. (MPC 587), Sonoita,
    Arizona, USA, 31.6656 N, 110.6020 W, 1516 m + Astrometrica software.
    What these numbers mean: http://www.satobs.org/position/IODformat.html

    Images can be found here:

    I initially had some trouble getting the images to astrometrically resolve. The 
    Rigel/Winer telescope was recently fitted with a new CCD camera, and (as it 
    turned out) some necessary info of the camera was listed wrongly on the SSON 
    website. This messed up the astrometric software.
    
    After someone provided me with the correct information today (pixel size is 18 
    micron, not 12/24) the images resolved correctly, yay! And yay for the 
    Astrometrica support mailing list!
    
    All objects show up well on the images (and each of them on two consecutive 
    images rather than just one). For me personally, this was the first time I 
    imaged AEHF 1 and MiTEx 1.
