    2nd batch, a bit belated, of the observing session with Leo and Bram at Leo's 
    location last Saturday-Sunday night. The USA 144 decoy, using the 100/2.5 lens.
    
    The track prediction was west of Vega, but Bram and Leo didn't see anything in 
    their binocs and on my photographs the trail was just east of Vega, not west!
    Then it dawned upon me: my prediction software was still set for my Leiden 
    locality instead of Leo's locality! That made the trail shift a few degrees...
