Mike McCants corrected one of my errors :

I discovered one myself - on my observation it was 127 seconds late,
not 40 seconds early !
( I happened to have one of my search elsets still in the file, and
it was that close to the given elsets, that I picked the wrong one for
the late pass)

In a later mail, Mike also noted:

>Using Rainer's elset:

....
>Which seemed to agree with your obs quite well:

I used an elset with 14.75 MM, and this was obviously older.

I missed the early pass today, because of thin clouds (and blue skies),
but will try at 20:30 UT.
