    I have observed an unknown satellite with
    the Mintron 12V1C-EX and lens 75 mm f/1.3
    each frame integrated for 0.64 seconds, gain about 9 dB.
    
    It moved very slowly northwards and westwards and
    brightened slowly from about mag 11 to 10.
    
    The orbit seems to be close to geosync. The elset below
    is made with Elcor, the mean motion is set to 1.00274.
    Further obs are needed to find the correct mean motion.
