    After the 1st 3 points I lost it in telescope, 8 inch dobs, at the high 
    angle. I was able to see unaided eye and then using finder scope was able to 
    get into the path and start tracking again for the last 3 points.
    At 02.32.56 UTC L5 passed thru a fuzzy object that was identified as M11
    
    Earlier ISS went just under Polaris for me to photograph.
    
    Lots of clouds but when clear seeing was very good. Attempted several other 
    satellites but was beaten by the clouds every time.
