NOTES:
--------
(1) This concludes observations made 04 Feb 2014.

(2) Now going to process observations made 03 Feb 2014 - approx 1800 images
    and at least 40 satellites seen in "real time" when images taken so 
    well may be some more - wonder if any hidden "treasures?". At the
    moment I am only trying to keep "current" with the KH satellites as
    far as reporting goes - the remainder will follor in due course.

(3) As I am using a wide angle field ( 12 x 9 degrees ) positional
    accuracy around 1 arc minute or so. Time accuracy is better than
    50 milliseconds.

(4) Did not track 05 Feb 2014 but observed USA 129 naked eye at predicted
     time so things quiet at the moment.

Cheers
Greg
