Searching database of minor planet names
The catalog of asteroids discovered at Klet can be searched in two ways. In the first one, pick a starting letter of asteroid's name from the listed alphabet. In the second way, start writing an expression to search (diacritics is allowed), and after at least three letters are typed, the results are automatically listed. The search can also be performed only on asteroid names, catalogue numbers, date of discovery or names of the discoverers.

After his return to Ondřejov, Guth led the department of interplanetary matter. Guth was president of IAU Commission 22 from 1952 to 1958. Name proposed by L. Kresák.
