    I started tracking Lacrosse 4 near Caph, beta cassiopeia, but then lost
    before it got to high in elevation. I was able to see it unaided eye and put
    finder scope on it, then was able to pick it up again in telescope for 3
    more points
    I also saw 5 sats that were 1st time sightings for me, the nearest and
    fastest moving was MightySat Mn r  #26415 #00042B at approx 300 mile
    altitude.
    Skymap for predictions, telescope 8 inch dobs with 40mm eyepiece for
    observations, and ObsReduce for reduction of points.
    Cold temp in mid teens F with plenty of snow on ground.
