    Last night, I had the mount track Nstar A ( 23561 ) and recorded the video for playback this morning, after I got home from Work.
    While playing back the video, this bright ( easy eye range ) passed by.
    I had to turn up the brightness somewhat. Sky didn't turn out very good, clouded up now :(
    Can't seem to match it, to any satellite. This is driving me crazy, all these unid satellites, I have spotted. 
    The 2 brighest stars in the video, are
    TYC 5078 416
    TYC 5078 515
    There's 2 harder to see star's, to the left of them.
    TYC = tycho star catalog number
    44.6062 N
    75.6910 W
