    George Lewis wrote ObsEntry, which enables manual entry of reduced observations,
    which it represents in IOD format:

    I wrote ObsReduce, which enables reduction of observations, which it represents
    in IOD or UK format:

    It is excellent, and I am not aware of any other similar file on the web that is
    as complete, accurate and regularly updated. Contributions of similar quality
    likely would also be valued.

    Observations of such objects are always welcome by those who are interested,
    which includes quite a few SeeSat-L subscribers, though probably a small
    minority of the total number of subscribers.
