    Tonight I thought, I go look for the DSP 20 cover with slooh.
    Using the intergrated orbit, I aimed where it was to pass. I had it imnage before and after it was to pass, to allow for error in arrival time.
    It was predicted to passed near a mag 6 star.
    I started looking at 4:02 utc, and it eventually showed up. So nice to be able to observe high up stuff, when I am under cloud.
    A closer view.
