    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.
    
    What these numbers mean:

    Lacrosse 5 was flaring while I obtained this image. Maximum brightness at about 
    mag 0 was about 5 seconds after the last point (=end of exposure), short before 
    shadow entry. Trail on image is very bright and well-defined, no difficulty at 
    all measuring this one.
    
    Image (reduced size) can be seen here:

    Pleiades and Hyades visible in it as well.
