    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.

    Took advantage of another clear morning, although somewhat hazy. Images of this 
    morning can be found at:

    91-017A was bright (mag. +2) as it came out of shadow and traversed the tail of 
    Ursa Major. It was 0.4s late and as much as 0.2 degrees off-track relative to an 
    8-day old elset.
    
    97-064A was fainter (mag. +3.0 to +3.5). I obtained 2 images, hence 4 points. It 
    was 1 second late but on-track relative to an 8-day-old elset.
    
    The ISS was less bright than last Friday, at about mag. -1.5 shortly after 
    exiting shadow in Canes Venatici. It was "white" this time. The positional 
    residues are nice:
