    Hi Rob,
    
         We both know someone who would love to test out the new version.  :-)
    
         Please send the file(s) via email or direct me to a URL and I will take care
    of the rest.
    
         Speaking of double flares (as per your message), I have at least * 8 * double
    and * 3 * triple flares during May. Since my primary objective right now is to
    capture every Iridium on film flaring at least one, I will treat the double and
    triple flares as isolated events when imaging. Once my gallery has been completed
    with all 88 Iridiums (Iridia?  :-)), I will go back and concentrate on daytime and
    duplicate flares.
    
    Anthony.
