    Old draft, finally sent ! :
    
    Just as often as appulse, I have used the third option, when the imaginary
    line between two stars id too long, or the satellite crosses it at a very
    shallow angle - a distance along a line perpendicular to the two stars.
    
    And don't forget the digital camera. I mostly (when the object is not fast
    AND faint) use the XY option, which can give much greater accuracy than
    10x50 binocs.
