    Notes:
    ~~~~~~
    These are amended positions - I measured the wrong end of the star
    trail. The position for 21h41m13.0s UT is not that great as I was
    missing the correct end of the star trail, so I added another
    position at 21h40m54.9s UT. My apologies to Mike for causing some
    confusion- I hopefully will not make the same mistake again :-))
    
    
    
    Cheers
    Greg
