    I can at least try. I have added them to my observation program.
    I do not expect positive results, because the objects will be small.
    As we see in Dutch (translated of course): "You never know how a cow catch a
    hare".
    Sometimes small objects are unexpectedly bright. May be this is true for
    those.
    
    Happy observing,
