NOTES:
---------
(1) Main purpose was to acquire USA 186 and USA 245 - achieved.
     USA 186 very bright - passes near perigee.
     USA 245 gave a little difficulty when measuring second pass - seemed
     the error between observed and predicted was somewhat larger on the
     second pass. Might be imagination because I was pretty tired with
     measuring then.

(2) Happy New Year everyone - I doubt if Ill be tracking again in 2014.
     Lets hope next years weather will be better - this year seemed to
     be the worst I can remember but that could be old age - getting
     lazier now.

Cheers
Greg
