    Attached is a version with further final improvement  due to noise reduction.
    Although there is no further gain in detail, the result looks more pretty)

      Result of observations on August 30 during 80 degrees pass of the
      spacecraft ASTEX, also called (SESP 1971-2) which was designed to test advanced 
      development payloads. This spacecraft was launched in October 1971 at
      a Thor-Agena-D rocket from Vandenberg AFB.
      The object definitely has a well-visible elongated shape and all frames
      of the session tend to show the elongation, a few frames show some
      more detail. Magnitude was 4.1 and with adjusted exposure-time it
      could be reasonably captured using the normally used imaging/res-scale
      (0.20-0.25''/p). It's not an easy object and strong frame selection
      is necessary. Image at right has 50% more color saturation.
