OFEQ 9 Observations

I'm not too confident in the accuracy of my observations, but I thought 
they might roughly show the difference between the most current TLE and 
OFEQ 9's orbit.

36608 10 031A   0000 F 20150412092328520 17 25 1728114-210085 28 S+070 10
36608 10 031A   0000 F 20150412092336820 17 25 1712359-214193 77 S+070 10
36608 10 031A   0000 F 20150412092340520 17 25 1705644-215827 28 S+070 10

Residuals from the 2.25 day-old TLE:
0.149 deg X-track; 1.606 s early
0.116 deg X-track; 1.838 s early
0.100 deg X-track; 1.825 s early

My location:
42.3492 N, 83.3827 W, 203 meters above sea level


As far as I can tell, my timing equipment should be accurate enough for 
positional measurements. I just need to work on starting the timer the 
exact instant a satellite passes between two stars.
