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.

Poor conditions: hazy skies. Good track photograph for Lacrosse 5 Rk, which was 
6.4s late and 0.3 deg off-track in cross-track relative to the 1 month old elset 
06144.07960865. Lacrosse 3 was 0.25s early and on-track.

Missed IGS 1B earlier in the night due to a goof: set camera inadvertently on 
macro instead of infinity...
