    Hi Alain,
    
    when observing in binoculars, identification is much safer if the
    track's intersection angle, position (and speed) are given in relation
    to a line between two stars in (or near) the FOV, or the vertical (or
    horizontal) line, counting clockwise like azimuth,
    
    rather than trying to extrapolate the culmination point or a horizon
    point, or the inclination, and the height.
