Hi!
I checked tonight.
There's a geostationary object where you mentioned, indeed, and it's not from full space-track catalog or Mike's classfd file.

00000 15 999A   1244 F 20150701231613230 27 15 2023274-065020 37 S+112 03
00000 15 999A   1244 F 20150701231723880 27 15 2024373-065011 29 S
00000 15 999A   1244 F 20150701231851800 27 15 2026057-065012 37 S
00000 15 999A   1244 P 20150701235146530 17 15 2059066-065039 37 S

Last point through moonlit haze, could be not so accurate.
All four neighbours are in place where they should be according to space-track's TLEs. Eutelsat-36A was hardest object to spot (mag 11.6±0.3).

EVS VNC-753-H2 CCD camera on the 12cm refractor (FOV is 36'x27'). Captured frames onto the computer. Clock synced via NTP. Processed with ObsReduce. Determined magnitude in comparison with nearby stars.

Best regards, Andriy Makeyev
