    Start point at Alpheratz, alpha andromeda, for all 3 sats. I picked the 3rd 
    one to track.
    My last point did not seem to agree with the other points on that sat. Notes 
    said 2x multipler on 2 stars using ObsReduce and that is what is reported 
    above. If it was a 3 multipler it may be more accurate. This is why degree 
    of accuarcy was reduced in last IOD point. Reference stars for that point 
    were .076 degree apart.
    
    Earlier I photographed with a 30 second exposure Iridium 43 flaring to -8 
    mag.
    
    Sky had thin cloud layer everywhere. Seeing in telescope only to 10 mag at 
    best.
