We present a fully calibrated light curve of asteroid (1725) CrAO using the 20’’ Ritchey-Chretien reflector telescope at the Union College Observatory. This was taken from four nights of observation during the fall of 2019. We have processed, aligned and performed photometry using AstroimageJ software. The light curve was calibrated using stars from Landolt standard star fields. We will show how we used a computational model to generate an calibrated magnitude in the R filter and make contributions towards a 3D model of our target. All research was done at Union College in collaboration with Dr. Stephen Slivan of MIT.
