    Correction to my earlier posting, it seems the UNID alongside YAHSAT 1A might be Mitex 1, now stabilised in that position, no movement visible during a 30 second exposure. Mitex 1 on very old KEPs shows up in the prediction field, but a bit east. The other sats in the field are in excellent agreement with their KEPs.
    The IOD as reduced in a solved plate using APEX:
    00085           0434 E 20121216200341000 16 15 0531331+042026 87  +113 02
    I had months ago IDed this as PAN, but I see PAN is now called out alongside PAKSAT 1R, there is a satellite there.
    
    Alongside ASTRA 3A is a stable UNID possibly UFO F9. It is predicted to be visible in the field but the KEPs are 100 days.The other sats in the field are in excellent agreement with their KEPs.
    The IOD as reduced in a solved plate using APEX:
    00026           0434 E 20121216191636000 16 15 0232549+040226 28

    Thunderstorms now so no viewing tonight.
