NOTES:
-----------
(1) Poor conditions - cloud - more like high level mist and very heavy
     humidity - could only see about half a dozen stars naked eye but
     since I had set up the equipment I was determined to get at least a
     few satellites as "clear" skies here are rare at the moment. Despite
     South Africa now having the worst drought in at least three decades
     the sky is covered by what looks like high level solid cirrus most
     of the time.

(2) Eventually gave up when I could not see satellites that should have
     been there!

(3) I think I have given up on using an equatorial mount for tracking-
     too inefficient/slow for remote satellite tracking - much easier to
     think in terms of azimuth and elevation.

Cheers
Greg
