    Notes:
    ========
    (1) Observations made by Ian Roberts ( NO relation that I know of!).
    
        Ian lives 10 degrees more east in longitude than I do so he makes
        a welcome addition to high altitude satellite tracking as this
        expands the amateur network a bit more east - now we just need a
        regular observer to cover longitudes ~ 90 degrees east to approx
        160 degrees west. Come on Australia/New Zealand - nobody there with
        a telescope to observe high altitude satellites ???
    
    (1) Observations made using a 50mm aperture f3.56 finder ( focal length
        183mm, image scale  9.35 arc sec/pixel, field of view 120 x 90 arc
        minutes,) mounted on Meade reflector used in equatorial mode.
        Camera was a meade DSI Pro II monochrome camera, without filters.
        Exposures generally around 20 seconds.
    
    (2) Processing done using APEX.
    
    (3) Ians report contained a bright unknown for which I cannot find a
        match.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
