COMMENTS:

1) Lucky on ORS1. It wasn't dark enough when I acquired it to measure (in
Cassiopeia), but it became good enough shortly thereafter. Better lucky than
good..

2) The trailing NOSS 3-5.. A, I think, flashed like a heartbeat. Video and
light curve forthcoming. (Also see the video from previously.. "NOSS 3-3 C
has a Heartbeat"). www.poyntsource.com/New/Gallery.htm (bottom of the page).
GIF will be posted when you read this, video may not be posted until
tomorrow..

3) No idea what the unknowns are. There is nothing that shows in Heavensat
using Classified, INT, and the full catalog within 5 deg or more.

4) I aimed for 90040 and didn't see it, so I went to Milstar 6 and 90040
made an appearance. Thought nothing of it until I tried to enter it into
ObsReduce vs. the Classified file. > 1,000 days and > 20,000 seconds off is
a wee bit too hard to measure with such an object and shifting fields of
view.. ( The INT file is amazing.. ) 

I have a project tomorrow, so if I observe anything, A) it wont be much and
B) it wont be high. But Friday and Saturday night I'll do what I can. Rain
on Tuesday (and hopefully some projects.. The bills wont pay themselves..)
