Well, I got an image from GRAS 14 ...

...but there wasn't an asteroid in it. Stars and faint galaxies are visible down to below magnitude 14, but there is a complete lack of Asteroid. The SkyMap field for the same time as the exposure is how to the left.

I took 3 x 120 second exposures, which should have been able to pick up a magnitude 14 asteroid. I "blinked" the images so I could see if anything jumped about, but nothing did. Maybe I messed up the times, but even if I'd been out by an hour I should have caught at least two images of the asteroid in this field. [sighs]
