    I aimed at Inmarsat F4-2 ( 28899 ) to see if I could see any flaring from it. I let the recorder,
    record all night, for playback in the morning after I got home from work.
    No flaring seen from Inmarsat F4-2. Plan on seeing when I can detect it again, with the wide feild
    Anyways I had a bright peice of debris ( 29158 ), pass through
    It's from the KOMPASS-2 satellite.
    Was in the Mag 6 range.
    Area of sky was
    2 h 54 m R.A
