Nice one :) Can't remember, looks familiar, have we seen this before? Still nice to see it again.

Just did some pixel peeping on it. I'm going to have to get really technical here, but I like the grey smudge to the right, once I decided it wasn't dirt on my monitor :D

A quick question, is it really that long shape, or is it due to movement relative to the background? The article suggests it is oblong shape, but that long?

It's a few down the list called "Marooned off Vesta". The shape is due to its movement against the "fixed" stars. If I'd tracked on the asteroid instead of a star, the asteroid would have been a point (like a star) and all the stars would be trailed - people often use this approach with comet images.
