Hi Ted,

Here are some *very approximate* points from the first image:

08 38 45    +03 20 29
08 53 11    -27 50 07
08 52 26    -32 30 33

Here are some *very approximate* points from the second image:

09 01 15    -47 03 47
09 00 38    -51 33 20

This refers to the brightest trail on the images.

For reference, visible near the center of the images is the Coalsack (dark cloud
in the Milky Way) with the southern cross next to it (above-right), and alpha
and beta Centauri to the left of it.
