    I got a video of TiPS tonight during the 11 PM flyover.  Highlight jpg is
    uploaded at

    Both Ralph and Norton were visible flashing intermittently, and the tether
    was continuously visible.  I was not able to see the objects visually or
    through optical aid, I relied on the camera instead.  Stellacam EX at max
    integrations and gain (seeing 3/5 trans 2/5 baaaad) in a light-polluted city
    park using an 8" SCT at f/2 (Fastar).  It was fun!
    
    Cheers
