    Some list members should be interested in the results reported 
    in the TASS list a few days ago, see
    The Stardial system is a drift scan camera looking at declinations
    0 to -8 degrees due South of latitude 40.11, longitude 88.22W.
    It is currently running, and has been imaging since 1996. The
    images are available on the Web ( see  )
    It seems to me this system would be of some use in checking up
    on geoflashers that occasionally must transit its FOV. ( 8 deg in Declination
    by 5 degrees in RA. 
    Just at the moment none of the Geoflashers in my subset are in the FOV
    according to highfly.
