In the MISAO Project, I have not tried to search known asteroids in
the images. But I have found some asteroids by chance during new
variable stars survey and so on.
The astrometry data is published in the MISAO Project Home Page.
However, I have not reported them to MPC, because most of those
asteroids are as bright as 12-14 mag, and the Minor Planet Checker
always said "None needed at this time.".
So I guess the astrometry of bright (especially numbered) asteroids is
not so important.
If I am wrong, I will immediately send mails to the MISAO image
observers in order encourage to report the astromety data to MPC :-)
