    In the above list, I assumed that the slightly fainter, slightly more east 
    object was PAN, the other Nigcomsat 1R.
    
    Since mid-november 2012, there hardly has been a clear night without moonlight 
    here in Leiden.
    
    Monday evening was an exception. I first did some astrophotography with my new 
    telescope mount, then switched to imaging geosats near local midnight.
    
    By that time, the sky was unfortunately deteriorating. The images came out quite 
    fogged, and I kept the session short for that reason.
    
    I think there has been no year before that I could only do my first observations 
    of the year in March, instead of January or February.
