2093 Genichesk (1971 HX) is a main-belt asteroid discovered on April 28, 1971 by T. M. Smirnova at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory.

Photometric observations at the Palmer Divide Observatory in Colorado Springs, Colorado during the winter of 2007–2008 were used to build a light curve for this asteroid. The asteroid displayed a rotation period of 11.028 ± 0.006 hours and a brightness variation of 0.24 ± 0.02 in magnitude.[1]
