Caught an asteroid in M16

Thanks to Mike Broussard over on the Cloudy Nights board for pointing out the passage of Asteroid 202 Chryseïs through M16 on Sunday morning. Seems we were both imaging the same thing at the same time. His image turned out a lot, lot better. I intentionally overexposed the close-up view below to highlight the asteroid. I was wondering what that little streak was! Thanks Mike!
