    Binocular obs, 28.5 s early on 9.9 day old elset according to ObsReduce
    SkyMap shows 5 s early on 6.9 day old set.
    I missed starting the voice recorder, and the position is "as predicted"
    along the proper 23' star split (zet Cyg):
    
    30591 07 005F   5919 G 20070507220444430 17 25 2113678+300188 39 S
    
    Milstar 5 was easy in 8" (and steady during the 12 minutes I observed it)
    22 s late using SkyMap SGP4,  18s early with SGP,
    2' above prediction, 5.5 s early, relative 18.6 day old elset in ObsReduce.
    The tight split of a mag +7.6/+8.0 star pair made the last magnitude
    value quite accurate (rel my usual ones)
    Believe it or not - I think this is my first telescopic of
    a geostationary, at least without siderial tracking the telescope .
