    Observations taken during the night of October 8/9, 2012.
    
    The video camera was pointed at a fixed azimuth (19 deg) and elevation
    (34 deg) for the duration of the night. Over 4000 individual 10s
    integrations were from 18:45UT to 05:45UT. Below are the measurements
    of known classified objects. I still have to examine all images for
    unknown objects.
    
    At this azimuth and elevation, the standard NOSS 3-X plane (63.4 deg
    inclination, 13.4 revs/day mean motion) almost appears stationary for
    certain RAANs, allowing a plane to be inside the 7.3x5.3 deg field of
    view of my camera for a bit more than a full orbit. This makes for a
    very cheap and easy way to do planar searches, provided the plane is
    illuminated for the duration of its traverse through my field of view.
