    Canon EOS 450D + EF 100/2.8 Macro USM or Carl Zeiss Sonnar MC 2.8/180,
    1600 ISO  + ASTRORECORD astrometric software.

    Second part of last night's observations, again obtained under a good clear sky.
    
    08-010A was considerably off from the predicted position. 06-027A was on-time 
    and on-track.
    
    Kosmos 2393, a Molniya orbit object captured as a stray, was flaring between 
    20:14:02.3 - 20:14:12.35 UTC (9 Oct). It is visible on 3 out of 4 images, 
    flaring brightly in the first.
    
    The 06-027A observations are the first with a new lens: an old DDR-made Carl 
    Zeiss Jena Sonnar MC 2.8/180 mm, fitted with a P6 to EOS adapter. Built like a 
    tank and heavy. This lens will be used by me to target faint high objects.
    
    It captured two Kosmos strays, one in a Molniya orbit.
    
    Apart from these satellites, also observed comet 103/P Hartley with the 10x50 as 
    a diffuse nebula just north of eta Persei and south of the double cluster.
