    Obs 17 Jan 2005 Part 2:
    ---------------------------
    
    Cosatrak 1 (Computerised satellite Tracking System).
    MINTRON low light level CCD surveillance camera (0.005 lux typical
    in non integration mode) and 0.00005 lux in STARLIGHT mode with 128
    frame integration.
    Only used at 48 frame integration- ie exposure 1 sec. Due to my
    poor bright city sky results with 128 frame integration are not as
    pleasing as 48 frame integrations.
    
    Used with 200mm focal length f/3.5 lens giving a field of view of
    about 1.805 x 1.334 degrees and easily showing 12th magnitude stars.
