    Canon EOS 450D + EF 50/2.5 Macro @ 2.8 or EF 100/2.8 Macro USM,
    800 ISO + ASTRORECORD astrometric software.

    A small BWGS meeting of Leo Barhorst, Bram Dorreman and me at Leo's boat in 
    Almere was concluded with a joint observing session.
    
    The sky was not optimal, especially later in the evening, but we managed to see 
    a number of objects from a small green near Leo's boat. The evening started with 
    a nice -3.5 flare of Iridium 80 at 60 degrees altitude in one of the Cygnus 
    wingtips. Bram and Leo looked for the newly launched Meteor objects, and 
    observed a flasher.
    
    Apart from some minor things like track predictions that came out slightly wrong 
    because my software was still set for the coordinates of Leiden :-p , all went 
    fine and it was fun to observe with Leo and Bram, which also allowed me to 
    demonstrate my photographic technique and the astrometry done on them.
    
    I have data on the USA 144 decoy (99-028C) as well but still have to measure these.
