Greetings:
29 Jan 1997 from my usual site:
#24680 96072A 20h46m13.0s UT RA 16h17.7m Dec -68d05' (J2000)  mag 7.5 steady
Fair position - had to use two stars 40 arc minutes appart to define "finish"
line on account of too few stars visible dur to bright Cape Town skies.
Estimated as 1/5th distance from brighter star.Positions, as usual,are
determined using the excellant GUIDE V5 program by Bill Gray where I am able
to display my telescope field of view down to whatever magnitude I want (
lcan go to mag 15!) but usually mag 8-9 is adequate.
Chhers
