    First batch of this evening. I also obtained observations on some HEO objects 
    with the 100 mm, but will reduce and post these tomorrow....
    
    The evening started clouded at twilight, making me miss the HTV. It cleared just 
    in time to observe the Shuttle STS-128, followed some 3 minutes later by the ISS.
    
    Next were USA 186 and Lacrosse 2. USA 186 flared to mag. -1 at ~20:25:43 UTC (10 
    Sep).
