I know we are not keeping record of these, as there's no one in this band of longitude, but here's a few classfd.tle objects seen on my trip to Oz. Looks like I was fooled on USA 227 (37377) by 16732, still new to me, and on DSP F21 (26880) by 20945, seen before. Ah well, for next trip or after they are retired. Looked in vain for 96041, one of the truly unknown objects left, very low in the west before and after shadow on 2 mornings. Greg, it's up to you! Note: I only looked for classfd objects not seen by me before, due to time constraints.

Due to travel limitations, I had to find these manually, using old field sweep method. Though the inventors of the push-to box I use were at the Ozsky Star Party, there were a lot of observers on the shared scopes and fewer clear hours than previous trips, so I did not *push* getting new method operating. Real focus of the party was DSO's of course, which I thoroughly enjoyed, and several attendees were on their first trip to Southern Hemisphere, so I could not justify scope hogging. FPAS of other objects later.

Note: dummy site 8888 is Coonabarabran, NSW, Australia (31.2773S,149.2790E 1800 ft). Typically, scope was 18" Classic Obsession at around 100X.
