This evening we observed Icos 19 (#11285) with our tracking scopes...
although this satellite did not have a Molczan #, we were suprised at it's
brilliance and angular size.

Marek Kozubal reported some unusual structure even at only 80x... we will
image it next time over, but does anyone have any info on the satellite
and/or series?

Also, we are interested in imaging large sats, and without Molczan #s, we
are quite in the dark, so to speak.  If you are aware of BIG sats w/o
Molczan#s, we would love to hear from you.
