    -------------
    
    (1) Sorry for the strays that have crept in - I have identified them in
        the line above the position determined. Easy enough to delete the two
        lines if the satellite position of no value. I now check on all objects
        seen in the field of view in the hopes of finding an unknown.
    
    (2) Position for TIPS is centre of tether. Both ends clearly visible
        entire pass but since the apparent length of the tether changes ( decreases)
        as elevation increases, it seems logical to report the centre.
    
    (3) #90022 questionable but only object near predicted position.
    
        #90005 not seen despite a 3 degrees box search around predicted
        position.
    
    (4) Hope not too many typing errors -- it was a lot to type for a two
        finger man!
    
    Cheers
    Greg
