    The PAN satellite does not appear to be at the predicted location.

    note 1 : one of these has to be PAN according to TLE data, presumably the R/B. But the reduction fits the R/B exactly and not PAN.
    A subsequent image, which would not auto reduce, showed only two objects at the location, orientation suiting the two Eutelsats. 
    note 2: extremely bright
    note 3: loose fit to TLE data, no sign of Thaicom 2 (per TLE data) in the same field
    note 4: loose fit to TLE data
    
    Regards,
    Ian.
    
    
    Reduced using Apex (otherwise not reported), verified in Heavensat.
    Az/el mounted 4" refractor working at F3 with DSI Pro 2 mono CCD camera.
