Many of the LONEOS comets have been reported as such.
Following the discovery of comet 2007 N1 by Rob McNaught in 2007 July, Syuichi Nakano was able to find pre-discovery images in LONEOS and NEAT observations from 2000 August and November.

In 2008 Dec, S Nakano linked the comet with previously unreported observations of an 18th magnitude object obtained by LONEOS in Sept and Oct 2000.
These were the earliest comets named for the observatory where they were discovered, something that has become almost routine with the multitude of Catalina, LINEAR, LONEOS and Spacewatch finds.
