    Method: Canon Digital Ixus 400 + ASTRORECORD astrometric software.
    Camera at manual mode, "10 second" (= 10.7 second) exposure, wide field
    f2.8/7.41 mm.
    
    What these numbers mean:

    Ridiculously warm, observing in shorts & T-shirt and still sweaty. Nice pass.
    
    Had a talk with two of the neighbours who were on the courtyard and had seen me
    operating the camera on the courtyard for several weeks and now finally dared to
    ask me what the h... I was doing with a camera at night. After I explained I was
    tracking secret satellites and showed them some pictures, you could see them
    think: "he's a bit balmy, but probably not dangerous..."  :-p
