How do they know this object didn't come from the Oort Cloud?

I don’t know much about astronomy so can someone explain why they didn’t obtain a picture of the object? She said they looked at it for 10 days through a telescope.

@2:45 "It was easily detectable with even with small telescopes"
This is contradicted by JPL data that shows its brightest magnitude was around 19 or so which is far too dim except by large telescopes AND long exposure CCD photos!
