    Thursday I used for the first time a telescope, computer driven
    by Brent Boshart's SatTrack (LXSAT)
    
    Practical arrangements made it difficult to use its along-track
    and cross-track adjustment capabilities, but I managed to
    switch from a 50x to a 140x eyepiece for the last (three) obs
    of USA 198.
    20:36:55 is just an appulse, but 20:36:35 is a split of a 1' pair.
    X-track errors vs. 08016. elset are about .4', .4', .4',.1',.0',.9'
    but offset from prediction +82.6,+81.1,+86.3,+90.2,+89.9,+90.5
    Although I had difficulties recognizing in ObsReduce the stars I scribbled
    down, comparing to SkyMap removed all uncertainty.
    The large variation could be due to the low apparent speed of the object.
    
    Milstar 5 was about 43 s late, though the first point gave 31 s !?
