    2 sats 3 points
    
    26474 00 047B   8305 F 20000819105546990 17 25 0555471-135639 38 S+035 10       
    70006 00 047A   8305 F 20000819105651740 17 25 0554343-134295 38 S+035 10       
    70006 00 047A   8305 F 20000819105704270 17 25 0601463-103206 38 S+035 10       
    
    I was zoned in at ~120+23 below Orion using HD 040136 +3.7 vM as my initial guide.
    sky was clear but limiting mag was poor, somewhere in the +5 range in that part 
    of the sky.  so my surprise to see both sats very clearly.
    26474 was a little higher in El than predicted and arrived maybe 3 sec earlier than predicted.
    the trailing sat, Lac4, (?) was somewhat higher in El and arrived about 55 sec after the 1st sat.
    I then followed the 2d sat to a 2d point as noted above.  2d Lac4 point was a tad above
    HD 040967 +4.9 vM if I have properly IDed that star and position.  have not run any resids
    yet.  
    
    adios
