    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:
    http://www.satellite.eu.org/position/IODformat.html
    
    
    Good near-zenit pass of Lacrosse 5, steady at mag. +2.0 to +1.5, no 
    "disappearance tricks".
    
    Obtained 3 images on one pass yielding 3 fine trails, hence 6 points. The last 
    two points come out 0.2s more early than the first four, so I might have been 
    slow in pressing the button for that last image.
