    We have a long period of clouds, rain and snow since early December.
    An appeal from Cees for observing usa 186 was impossible to attempt, and
    now it is below 8 degrees culmination, and it will be some time before the
    altitude conquers the increasing daytime.
    
    I have seen only one clear (late) evening when we were away for Christmas.
    Even then it was cloudy at dusk when I could have a chance to see the IGS.
    Instead I captured three images of #28385, but I had too large cross-track
    errors, and had to search for mis-identified stars in ObsReduce. Since the
    elset was only four days old, I had not brought my "Time-the-Sat"
    cellphone, camera time to the nearest second - checked on return three days
    later, and the time error was in the 20s range, I did not try very long,
    and did not post them.
    
    After I have written utilities to cross-check positions and image scales, I
    have now improved my observations from temporary location 5922 59.2162
