    Hi All,
    I am using Starry Night to project the orbit of MAST based on Heavens 
    Above's TLE.  H-A pass is about 0508 UT.
    When I compare the tracks between 0505 UT and 0511, there is a 7 degree 
    shift in the path, east in azimuth.
    If the tether is deployed, is it likely the drag has caused a lower 
    orbit and even earlier arrival than minus 4 minutes?

       Still no sign of MAST 
      Tonight I used a 4.5 degree FOV , 7 second exposures using Eta Leo as 
     guide star. 
      These settings , despite the bright Moon gave me mag 8 or 
     , still no sign of MAST
