17061 Tegler           Discovered 1999 Apr. 10 by the Lowell Observatory Near-Earth Object Search at the Anderson Mesa Station.
Stephen C. Tegler (b. 1962), of Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, is a planetary astronomer who has studied the chemical composition of comets and the physical properties of Kuiper Belt Objects. His KBO colorimetry implies a correlation with dynamical class.
