8860 Rohloff           Discovered 1991 Oct. 5 by L. D. Schmadel and F. Börngen at Tautenburg.
Ralf-Rainer Rohloff (b. 1960) is a design engineer on the staff of the Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie, Heidelberg. Head of the construction team, he played an important role in the development of adaptive optics devices for the MPIA and UKIRT telescopes. The name was suggested by the first discoverer.
