     Using H-A and elset

    for lat=51.217&lng=3.233&loc=Bruges I get ISS 14' above Rigel
    Same elset and location, Rob Matson's SkyMap puts it 8' above Rigel
    >Tonight I saw the ISS from my hometown Bruges, Belgium. Heavensat (Passes 
    tab) predicted it would pass very near to Rigel (Beta Ori), to >the south of 
    Rigel. In Heavensat, with the option Star approaches, it also calculated a near 
    pass of Rigel, but now north of the star. The >distance between the two passes 
    is about 25 arc min. Is used the same observing location and the same TLE for 
    the calculations. Could >this be an error in Heavensat 2.3.0?
