    Method: Canon Digital Ixus 400 + ASTRORECORD astrometric software.
    Camera at manual mode, "10 second" (= 10.7 second) exposure, wide field 
    f2.8/7.41 mm.
    
    What these numbers mean:

    Had bad luck with the KH's. Saw USA 186 with the naked eye but an error occurred 
    when the camera wrote the data to the memorycard, resulting in a corrupted file. 
      USA 129 was obscured by an untimely patch of clouds. So only four points on 
    IGS 1B to report. It was 3s early and clearly off in cross-track relative to 
    elset 06115.87140454 .
