    WATEC 902H video + Canon EF 35/2.0 + GPS time inserter
    + ASTRORECORD
    astrometric software.

    Filmed a number of objects with the WATEC last evening.
    
    The NOSS 3-3r showed a nice variability that was captured well on video 
    (analytical results to follow later). NB: I had some trouble with the 
    astrometric solution on this object so regard the 2 points above with some caution.
    
    96-072A yielded fine consistent results.
    
    I also captured METOP-A and filmed it while it flared to mag. -2. Unfortunately, 
    the GPS time signal was lost about 1 minute before this happened but I hope to 
    be able to reconstruct a decent brightness curve by extrapolating frame rates. 
    The resulting video will be posted later and is awesome.
    
    The ATV 3 data (00 000A) are from two images shot this morning in deep twilight.
