    In my last post I intimated that my dvd recorder
    malfunctioned, that was incorrect, it was the owner
    that did. Having now sorted the problem I have
    recovered the footage of 96072A I took yesterday.
    My approx of running 20 to 30 seconds late was
    pretty good:-
    
    24680 96 072A   2756 G 20050505220711100 17 15 0801146+325927 99
    24680 96 072A   2756 G 20050505220733020 17 15 0733240+365246 99
    24680 96 072A   2756 G 20050505220806260 17 15 0648294+410549 99
    24680 96 072A   2756 G 20050505220834960 17 15 0611311+433122 99 
    
    I also mentioned it flashed (flared, which is it?) Anyway, for
    those that like that sort of thing, here's a description; 
    Flare at 22:07:35.5, duration 0.45seconds, reaching mag+1, it 
    took me by surprise, it's bright on the video and outshines all
    other stars in the fov (and subsequent fov while tracking it).
    
    Otherwise, it was fairly constant mag+5.5, slowly dimming as the
    pass progressed.
