    Ed, going though the satellite file for Starry Night I note several you list
    that are not in their file.  Do you know how I can add these?  The elements
    are all there and in the same order but the format is different.  I know I
    can add additional satellites but the data has to be added one at a time and
    there's a lot of keyboard entry ahead.  It would be nice to be able to
    import the file you have; then there is the minor detail of keeping it
    current since their download won't contain these.

    That photo shows primary, secondary, and even faint tertiary
    maxima.  Very interesting!
    Patrick, do you need a list of other such objects to image?!
    Here's one:
    On pretty much any night of the year, some of these objects
    are above any part of the Earth.
    Our next three or four nights will be cloudy with good
    chances of rain, the weather forecasters are telling us.
    When the Moon's not shining brightly, the clouds like to
    call an assembly, especially on weekends -- here at least.
