Delta 4 r (41746) was recovered with the aid of Ted's 73704 search TLE. 
The booster is bright and an easy target even in the moon light.

Using the post fuel dump points and those obtained on August20th and the 
21st, I have developed the following TLE:

GSSAP 3 r
1 41746U 16052C   16232.50440972  .00000000  00000-0 00000-0 0    04
2 41746   0.8535  48.9260 0006274 263.6706 102.7779 0.98987793    06

A comparison of the search TLE and the onepresented above with the 
observationscan be viewed here:
