    A session cut short by clouds coming in: when I started photographing, clouds
    already moved in from the West and entered the target area some 3 minutes
    later...nevertheless captured a few objects.
    
    Conditions were mediocre and clearly not as good as Dec 29th.
    I did not measure non-classifieds, except for those very close to classified
    objects.
    
    96-026A (Mercury 2) was about 1 degree off in position (this while obs by Cees
    on Dec 29 still put it at the correct position), so it appears to be on the move.
    
    Could only see 2 of the 3 objects that make up the trio including PAN. I have
    taken the eastern-most of these to be PAN (09-047A).
