1991 GC10. Discovered 1991 Apr. 9 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.

Named in honor of Gerhard Lehmann (1960- ), an amateur astronomer who with Jens Kandler {see planet (8861)} measured some 70 precise positions of minor planets and comets from photographic plates obtained at Drebach {see planet (6488)}. Among the 1500 positions he has derived after switching to CCD equipment in 1994 are some for the 1998 opposition of this object. The Drebach positions have made more than 30 Tautenburg objects appropriate for numbering. A teacher of physics and astronomy, Lehmann is also a popularizer of astronomy and since 1997 the head of the minor planets section of the Vereinigung der Sternfreunde. (M 33389)
