    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.
    
    What these numbers mean:

    It rather unexpectedly cleared in the evening. Good transparent sky.
    
    A first pass (18:34 UTC) of 97-064A was captured but the trail too faint to 
    measure. More luck during the 20:14 UTC pass, when it was bright just before 
    going into eclipse. Two points, on-time but perhaps slightly off-track.
    
    Got two pictures of Lacrosse 5rk (05-016B), hence 4 points, it was bright, nice 
    pass. It was some 0.4 sec late and on-track.
