    NOTES:
    --------
    (1) Two unknowns seen - ie not in element database so no matches found.
    
        #99998 is quite faint and slightly variable
    
        #99999 is bright and reasonably steady
    
        both produced reasonable trails so not geostationary
    
    (2) Still another 5 fields to examine. First examination showed targets
        not seen so will have to examine more carefully as fields do contain
        satellites.
    
    (3) About half the images had to be reduced manually as focus/seeing
        was not that great and APEX did not like the images so refused to
        cooperate and automatically measure them.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
