    Hi Kevin,
    
     
    
    Last night (20h46.0 to 46.7m UTC), I managed to take 23 photos (1.6 second duration each)  of NOAA 14 ,  from 15° to 13° above the NNE horizon, under Cassiopeia, 
    
    I got 8 nice maxima on the photos and derived an accurate photometric period of : 4.60 s +/+0.03 s.
    
     Using binoculars  the maxima were very bright, and they last for about 0.3 second as measured on the photos.
    
     
    
    Thanks for the info about this nice sat !
