    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.

    A fine clear sky again at last. Obtained two images on Lacrosse 4 (00-047A, 
    26473), one as it sailed across Andromeda at about +2.0, the other while it was 
    entering eclipse in Pegasus (hence only the start of the track was measured for 
    the latter image). The first image yielded a splendid well-defined trail. In 
    all, 3 positions. The 3rd point is perhaps less good as the 1st and 2nd, as the 
    trail already was becoming faint due to eclipse entry.
    
    The delta T's are quite consistent internally: the satellite was 1.5 seconds 
    late relative to Mike's 10 day old elset 05273.79219807.
