    NOTES:
    -----------
    (1) Poor night with most of the sky covered by slow moving cirrus.
    
    (2) Still have a few more geosat fields to process but that can wait
        until tomorrow. APEX now working pretty well - secret was to add
        the infra-red filter and mapping the dead pixels - images now look
        uniform and star trails/satellites are quite sharp. Guess further
        improvement could be done if I started using flat fields to remove
        the vignetting in the one corner of the images but APEX does not
        seem to be bothered by this.
    
    (3) PAN and PAKSAT 1 close together so not sure which is which.
    
    (4) Unknown reported last time is 99% certain MAGNUM 3 - aka as ADVANCED
        ORION 3, catalog number #27937. Although a relatively "old" launch
        it would appear that it recently moved into my observing zone.
    
    Cheers
