Events (i.e. clouds and wonky scope) conspired to ruin the 2nd group of images.

Other recent no-gos:
8/9/19 COSPAR 7780 (California) only scope "in the world" open - all images off time due to small field and difficulties "swinging" a 24" CDK Astrograph.

8/7/19 - 8/11/19 poor results from Perth, most unusable. A few satellites were reportable, all minor planets and many variable stars were not focused or plate solved, and so useless.

8/6/19 Wife and I could not discern Cygnus NG-11 (44188) from ISS naked eye.

8/10/19 Last visible pass of orphaned 44188 but only 10 deg up in SW, bad phase angle and in bright twilight - saw something! - ISS only.

But...the moon has been nice passing Jupiter and Saturn.
