    Note also looked for 99068H,,J & K but was unable to acquire, they are probably
    at mag 7.5 or dimmer if they are still up.  (My limiting mag was around 8.5).  
    Also note that the older elsets I used listed them as "91"068 vs "99" 068.
     
    Tried to find LACE and 23133, (Atlas 1 Centaur booster), several times with
    no luck, assuming listed magnitudes do not apply to this hemisphere.
