    Correction:
    ============
    
    Ive tried twice already to get SeeSat to handle this properly but each
    time it looses the main part in sending the digest out - must be something
    in the text that messes up the SeeSat mailer si Ive redone it completely.

    The time reported above is INCORRECT- it should be 1 minute earlier, ie
    
    26113 00 017A   0433 G 20060425194616000 56 15 1450176-400942 39  +115 05
    
    I measured the wrong end of the star trails!!
    
    Here is another measurement corresponding approximately to the original
    time reported:

    Congratulations to Curtis Haase for spotting my error!
    
    Sorry for this - there were so many star trails it was not immediately
    obvious which end was which and in my haste I made a mistake.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
