An extremely transparent, frosty sky. The waxing moon was actually no real
hindrance and I could take longer exposures than I can normally do from Leiden
center.

Used the 2.8/180mm Zeiss in order to capture not too bright objects such as
SBIRS GEO 2.

The Astra 1 group spat out of the image as a group of bright dots.

Pictures made came in handy the following day, when I had a tv crew of the news
backgrounds program "EénVandaag" on Dutch national television interview and film 
me about classified satellites and especially SBIRS, related to my briefing of 
Dutch Parliament members on this topic the next day during a Parliament 
committee hearing. One of the pictures featured in the news item.
