    Observations 27 Aug 2011
    ----------------------------
    
    Cosatrak 1 (Computerised satellite Tracking System).
    Camera mount now carries two systems that can be operated
    together as two totally different sytems and computers used.
    Generally the DSI Pro II camera will be used for high altitude
    slow moving objects. Tests seem to indicate that its sensitivity
    is comparable to the MINTRON ( possibly better) but as its not
    possible (?) to time stamp to better than 1 second accuracy the
    time resolution is not good enough for LEO objects.
    
    Meade DSI Pro II Monochrome CCD camera without filters.
    using integration times of 05 sec min to 30 seconds maximum
    depending on brightness of sky in particular area.No image
    processing done but dark field applied.
    Used with 102mm aperture f/2.56 refractor ,field of view 84 x 63
    arc minutes. Can get to magnitude 13 or so in less than 20 seconds
    exposure.
    Exposure time to nearest second inserted into image FITS header
    from PC clock which is checked against GPS signal.
    Images processed and automatically reduced using APEX.

    NOTES:
    ==========
    (1) Good observing conditions - cold with slight wind which blows
        away all the smoke pollution from the squatter camps.
    
    (2) All satellites where expected to be.
    
    Cheers
