    Lacrosse 2 (91-017A) is 17.3 seconds early relative to Mike's 07357.17849791.
    Observations from the 6th are 1 second early.
    
    Double-checked time in EXIF header of image to rule out mistake in time 
    notation, but it really is 17 seconds early.

    I lost 3 additional visually determined points on the NOSS 3-3 duo and Lacrosse 
    2. In the dark I must somehow have pushed a wrong button or whathever: because 
    when I looked at the stopwatch just before the NOSS 3-4 duo pass, I noted it was 
    no longer running! All three previosuly logged points were erased, sadly enough. 
    In the confusion to start the stopwatch up again, I actually lost the NOSS 3-4 
    pass. Bummer!
