    The sat from the first point is the one that passed *Just* North of Caph.. 
    
    
    Jesus.. Apparently I need more sleep.. or less heat..
    
    That should be the SECOND point.. i.e. the sat at the upper left of the
    video is the one that passed Caph at the end of the video..
    
    SHEESH..

    COMMENTS:
    I was playing with the new tripod.. In the house.. Looking East out the
    window.. thru the trees.. Cloudy, so spent a great deal of time locating
    stars and IDing them.. Positive on the star IDs, not sure at all on the
    sats, but I was aiming for IGS 1A, but got two sats at once.. 
    
    This is very near Ted's W11/W23 search elset, but around 3 minutes late.. it
    is also about 7 secs off of IGS1A being the second point nearly a degree off
    track.. 
    
    Can provide video, but like I said.. it's in the trees..
    
    Star at the end of the clip I am 95% sure is Caph. 99.9% sure of the three
    stars (see above) and the time (Time is never wrong)..
    
    Position is less than 100 feet away from normal, but for exactness..
