    I had a good time visually tracking Milstar 3 with 8" f/6 dob reflector,  
    38X.  This is the type of object well-suited to my preferences.   Pretty bright, 
    not too fast, and it Flared twice to mag. +2.5 ? and +4 ? briefly  after it 
    passed Sirius.  Magnitude is fairly hard to judge without  simultaneous 
    comparison star. Followed it into the low clouds or eclipse (not  sure which.)
