Sayan Solar Observatory (C48) has discovered two new asteroids – 2016 SX34 and 2016 SZ34

With help of free beta-version of the CoLiTec software 2016 – Summer (1.6.6.1) Sayan Solar Observatory (C48) of Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics during the short period of time has discovered two new asteroids – 2016 SX34 and 2016 SZ34. Also, temporary designations of three asteroids have been changed according to the observations of C48. About 30 objects that are not present in catalogue were identified as moved objects.

The need to use the CoLiTec software was caused by the introduction of a new wide-angle optical surveillance telescope AZT-33VM. A distinctive feature of this tool is a large field of view (FOV = 2.8 degrees) at the aperture of 1.6 meters. Calculated angular field of view of the telescope AZT-33VM is 2.8 degrees, and linear – 277 mm. Spectral range: 400 – 1100 nm. The working field of view of the telescope is determined by the photodetectors, and currently stands at 0.5 ° × 0.5 ° with a CCD camera FLI PL4301 (2084 × 2084 pixels of 24 microns).
These parameters make AZT-33VM telescope as unique instrument. Its using allows solving various problems of fundamental and applied astronomy, associated with survey observations.
