    ASTEROID may! From left to right in the center of the asteroid's movement to the star. 1-not visible, 2-muddy spot, 3 and 4 shows the asteroid accurately! 05.09.15

    Nice one, planetari7 ! I think in 1 it might just be a smaller muddy spot.
    Хороший улов, planetari7! Я думаю в 1, что это может быть просто пятно меньше мутный.

    Mmm ... maybe ... (playing around a bit with

    (Presuming the potential asteroid target is left of the bright object/star(?) a little below the image center.)

    The SDSS image of the same region shows two faint objects on the left side of the bright object in question.
    Note that similar faint objects in the SDSS image tend to show up a bit intermittently in the asteroidzoo image.

    Per your ++:
    I agree, and think that would be very similar to the GPS coordinates-of-the-mouse feature on Google Earth.
    Since we are only talking 256 x 256 pixels, it would make sense to use pixel count for the coordinate system, i.e. X123,Y234. Very compact, and as precise as practical.
