    EURONEAR - Tools - Precovery Suprime-Cam

Description: Precovery and recovery of known asteroids and NEAs from the Subaru Suprime-Cam archive (70,000 images 1999-2011).
Input: Observing log in standard Suprime-Cam format (the entire archive is available here taken from the SMOKA website).
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 Suprime-Cam logs 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 Suprime-Cam images.
Queries: The SkyBoT service (Berthier et al., IMCCE/Obs Paris).








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