    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:

    Another still and clear morning.  A few patches of drifting clouds. Observed two 
    Lacrosses (2 & 3) and the ISS again. I obtained 2 pictures/4 point on each object.
    
    97-064A and 91-017A (Lacrosses 3 & 2) appeared some 10 minutes after each other 
    in the same sky area with almost the same range (670-695 km) and illumination 
    phase (70-71%). This made me appreciate the difference in intrinsic brightness 
    between the two, which was clear visually as well as on the photographs (I will 
    post something on that later).
    
    ISS was nice and bright when emerging out of shadow near the zenith, yet not as 
    bright as last Friday.
