NOTES:
--------
(1) Changed optical configuration to wide angle for use on leo sats.
     Field of view is 723 by 545 arc minutes with a resolution of
     52.2 arc sec/pixel in 4 bin mode - ( highest sensitivity but
     lowest resolution). Focal length 85.3 mm and operating at f/2.8-
     beautiful quality images BUT the disadvantage is an ENORMOUS
     number of stars when used with the program APEX - sometimes as
     many as 20000 or more stars in a field so it takes APEX a bit longer
    to reduce images.

(2) So here is first lot of satellites observed using bin mode 4.
     Still to do satellites done in bin mode 3 and high altitude
     satellites done in bin mode 1 ( highest resolution).

Cheers
Greg
