Use of Telescopes in finding Unknown Asteroids

Over the months long automated asteroid discovery test, the telescope actually discovered some other asteroids not previously well known, and was able to then also compute good orbit estimates for them. The orbits and the apparent asteroid types (from reflected spectra) and sizes (from viewed brightness) were transmitted to Earth libraries which kept updated lists of all known asteroids' types, sizes, and orbits.

Since the trial attempt to remotely automatically find unknown asteroids by a programed telescope in space had worked well, the investors responsible for the two high orbiting settlements thus agreed to have some new telescopes robotically made, some to be sent out from the telescopes making asteroid to begin spotting more unknown asteroids, and to then compute estimated orbits.

Where should such new made asteroids finding telescopes be sent? The high orbiting settlers scheming this had agreed that in near Venus would be good. They'd be able to view out away from Sol to discover many small asteroids between Venus & Mars (lit visible enough by Sol).

Such asteroid finding telescopes etc. could be formed from parts tossed out from the telescopes asteroid. Then over many months, ion jet each with all else needed, like its own computer, communications cube, a viewing direction tilt changing occasionally spun solid sphere, etc., to finally achieve a useful wide orbit around Venus. Also put telescopes into orbits around the Lagrangian L4 & L5 orbit stability points 60deg before and after Venus in its orbit.

Have these new telescopes repeatedly scan through the planetary disk where most asteroids orbit Sol, or at least periodically briefly pass across to somewhat above or below the planetary disk. Each time a previously unknown asteroid gets detected (being lit some by Sol), its visual path would let it get frequently spotted again and again. The telescope's computer would gradually become able to compute an ever more improved estimated orbit.

A telescope would later be aimed less frequently to where the dim little spot was increasingly better predicted to pass by. Detecting it again and again would let its orbit path estimate be ever better improved. Then it would later be aimed to spot the object again some more times. The computed orbit would thus keep being improved.
