    Method: Canon Digital Ixus 400 + ASTRORECORD astrometric software.
    Camera at manual mode, "10 second" (= 10.7 second) exposure, wide field
    f2.8/7.41 mm.

    Note: I slightly modified the earlier -0.35s calibration to -0.30s. This is 
    based on 24 calibration points obtained over the past 2 weeks which (with 
    -0.30s) yield an average delta T and st. dev. of -0.02 +- 0.09s.
    
    97-064A made a flare at 21:01:34 UTC
    
    07-005C was bright, fast and steady on a near-zenith pass. This is the first of 
    the new IGS objects I was able to capture.
    
    Like the night before it was a beautiful very transparent sky.
