NOTES:
---------
(1) Really should not have tried to observe geosats as it turns out
    conditions were too poor - naked eye visibility was magnitude +3.
    As a result most of the objects targeted were either too faint or
    invisible . In measuring I gave up on the fainter images so only
    the brighter geosats reported. Ive had enough of this session, so
    although I measured a large number of commercial geosats (29kB file)
    Im not  going to report them - besides nobody interested in those
    satellites and only really worth doing for magnitudes, but on account
    of the poor transparency the magnitudes would be suspect. I have a
    few objects I will need to have a closer look at that looked like
    satellites - they may be unknowns but more likely image defects.

(2) Hope I have PAN correct - the first few measurements I did manually
    to make sure I measured the most westerly object. The real moral of
    this session was do not use a wide angle lens for geosats - there
    are just too many of them!!!

Cheers
Greg
