Having just joined the group, I had not intention of posting anything until
I had gained a bit more of a clue.  However, I had a good pass of
Astro-H/Hitomi/41337 tonight so I took a whack at it.  Both visually and
photographically it appeared right on time using tle downloaded earlier
today.  I only saw one object through 110x40 binoculars from an urban
location.

This was also my first crack at ObsReduce so I would not base the world on
this.  I would appreciate it if someone could check this and see if the
numbers seem reasonable.

41337 16 012A   0000 G 20160328014130000 17 25 0703024-235000 37 S+080 10

I apologize in advance if I have made any major errors or stepped on
anyone's toes.
