    These two below were already reported in an earlier e-mail as possible
    "UNID", but re-issued here with proper ID (Mercury 2):

    Above, I have taken the brighter object with more northern declination to be 
    Paksat 1R, and the fainter more southern object to be PAN.

    Canon EOS 60D + Samyang 1.4/85mm, 800 ISO + ASTRORECORD astrometric
    software.

    Clear sky, so an opportunity to record geostationary objects. Mid-June, so 
    continuous twilight here at 52 N and "dark" very late only (after local 
    midnight)....
    
    I used the SamYang 1.4/85mm lens again because of it's wide FOV (drawback: lots 
    of objects to identify...). I apparently did a sloppy job with the focus this 
    time as images are slightly unsharp. Nevertheless enough objects visible, 
    including the primary targets of the session (a.o. PAN).
    
    The new camera (EOS 60D) was used, with preliminary timing calibration.
