Allen Thomson noted that when input in Google Earth, these coordinates land you 
approximately 100 meter from the 60-cm Schmidt dome at Piszkéstetö.

This is probably because (and I had not realized this) the coordinates are 
astrogeodetic coordinates, not WGS84.

In WGS84, the coordinates for this telescope are approximately: 47.91754 N, 
19.89365 E

It is a bit academic, as for objects at geostationary distance this ~100 meter 
difference in observer position hardly matters.
