    EURONEAR - Tools - Precovery ESO

Description: Precovery and recovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the ESO/MPG Wide Field Imager (WFI) images.
Input: Observing log in standard format (the entire archive between 19991025 and 20120225 is available here).
Warning: Do NOT attempt to send at once more than 500 lines, otherwise the script will crash due to intensive internet access. Instead, use any text editor to cut the master ESO-WFI log in smaller pieces and send them in a few runs.
Output: Few text files holding serendipitous encounters of known NUMbered, UNNUMbered asteroids, NEAs and PHAs, probably appearing in the searched images.
Queries: The SkyBoT service (Berthier et al., IMCCE/Obs Paris).








Please be patient, the whole run could take a few minutes...
