    I have bad news and good news. 
    
    The bad: you did not observe 04034B. It was ~75 s late relative the epoch
    10052.81 elements.
    
    The good: you observed 07027B, which also happens to be of interest to the
    group.
    
    Using 04034B as the reference, ObsReduce led you to the wrong reference
    stars for your first two reductions. I have deduced the circumstances of
    your first observation, and have applied them to what I believe to be the
    correct stars, yielding:
    
    31702 07 027B   8336 G 20100303010445000 17 25 0004404+611777 18 R
    
    Your second observation was a close appulse of the mag 5.6 star at 23:15:38,
    +70:53:17 (2000.0), which is about 1 deg away from the one you reduced. I
    was unable to determine the circumstances, so only you can complete the
    reduction.
    
    Your final observation requires only a change of ID:
    
    31702 07 027B   8336 E 20100303010540290 57 25 2236458+743046 58 R
