0.51-meter F/6.3 Dall-Kirkham + CCD + Astrometrica + UCAC4

----------------------------------------------------------------------

'Remote' observations with the 0.51-m of Warrumbungle Obs., Australia.

MiTEx 1 was about 90 seconds (0.4 deg) ahead on inttles.tle predictions for it,
and about 50 seconds late on the classfd.tle predictions (1 month old elset).

It was captured on one 30 second image only (first image in the series), and the 
trail leaves the FOV in the image.

On the image it is slowly flaring, starting faint and then becoming brighter.

MiTEx 2 was also looked for but not seen: if it was similarly ahead in delta T
as MiTEx 1, I might have just missed it.
