    This was very close to Mike's latest guess.. I am not positive, but I think
    it was around 30 seconds early.. (I was very confused, as my camera had
    automatically switched to a mirrored view.. )
    I recorded for 45 minutes, but I can't ID any other stars tonight.. I will
    observe it tomorrow and gather more points for the Normal camera view..
