    There is a program called first orb by Rainer Kracht which takes the 
    observations in R.A and Dec and generates a orbit from them.
    It can be downloaded off a ftp server
    Look for something called first.exe
    Then you use a program like mike mccants fitelem program, to improve the 
    orbit based on those observations
    Fitelem can be found here
    Have fun, I have tried to generate an orbit from observations and fail.
