    All set up last night under clear skies last night around 1925 gmt. Using 40 
    mm  lens/webcam combi FOV 4.5 degs.
    
    Had this idea that I would sit the camera just to the South of Regulus and 
    wait for Rosetta to pass by , then follow it on.
    
    Between 1928 and 1945 this region became quite a junction for passing 
    satellites
    and I estimated that I was seeing the starfield down to mag plus 10 / 11.
    Then with an over half an hour to go , in swept the wonderful UK cloud 
    blanket . . . . . . . . story of my life   :O)
    
    Looking forward to seeing Gregs pics  !
