NOTES:
------------
(1) Used 8 inch reflector to make the fainter satellites easier . However
     because of the large surface area of the scope it is very sensitive
     to wind vibrations. For some reason the images generally look rather
     "dirty" - I suspect its something external to the scope - maybe
     partial flooding of the area of the tube around the secondary mirror
     as a result of external light pollution - maybe a longer lens "hood"
     may improve contrast and background.

(2) Not sure what 99998 is - bit far from any obvious object-maybe
     Mentor 2 rocket but only one image - probably discard it.

Cheers
Greg
