90 Antiope: Raw Keck Image

This raw, unprocessed, adaptive optics image of asteroid 90 Antiope was obtained in August 2000 at the Keck Observatory. The sizes of the two separate components of Antiope are not as large, relative to the 100-mile distance between them as it appears. In a conventional telescopic photograph, the two objects would appear to be one big, blurry blob.
