    ObsReduce is an MS Windows program that reduces observations of satellites
    relative to the background stars into their precise coordinates. Observers
    identify their reference stars in a simulated binocular or telescope field of
    view, select them using the mouse, enter the observed geometric and positional
    data, and the program automatically produces a formatted observation report. 
    
    ObsReduce supports all three reporting formats in common use: IOD, UK and RDE
    (Russell Eberst's abbreviated form of the UK format.) Here are recent examples
    of observation reports in these formats:
    
    IOD format:

    UK format:
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Apr-2004/0020.html
    
    RDE format:
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Mar-2004/0023.html
    
    All R.A. and Dec formats and epochs are supported, as are visual magnitude and
    optical period reporting.
    
    ObsReduce 1.0.3 is mostly a bug-fix, plus a few minor new features. Existing
    users can find details and a patch file here:
