    My first satellite session for a while.  05-042A flared to -1 near the 
    zenith which was fortunate as I had missed it at the star I had planned to 
    capture it (theta Leonis). Be warned, I may have picked the wrong pair of 
    stars though the sat did pass 9/10 between them. 03-009A very fast and 
    bright; I am still unable to observe the Eastern plane IGS sats.
    
    80mm f/5 refractor, 24mm Panoptic eyepiece.
