> NOTES:
> ------
> (1) Northern hemisphere observers have a "sweet spot" where they can
>     optimize the best efficiency for "staring" at a spot in the sky -
>     this point corrsponds to a band where the NOSS satellites have their
>     northern apex - eg Cees, Scott and Leo. Peter Wakelin has a sweet
>     spot where he can observe the high altitude Molniya satellites.
>     I do not have such a spot as the southern apex of the Noss satellites
>     is too low in a southerly direction and I have poor observing
>     conditions in that direction, so where is my "sweet spot?"
>
>     This turns out to be looking for GTO objects. There are a large number
>     of uncatalogued, ( as well as catalogued) objects that have eccentric
>     orbits around the latitudes of the Ariane launch site and the latitude
>     of Cape Canaveral - Atlas, Centaurs etc, and these will all pass to the
>     north of my latitude, so obviously aim north. Now one should observe
>     at as favourable a phase angle as possible to get the satellites at
>     maximum brightness as the distances involved can sometimes be quite
>     high. One needs to also be close to the earths shadow for a mid-range
>     satellite in GTO. In addition one does not want the field to be
>     cluttered with too many objects in LEO orbits so again keep a fair
>     phase angle distance from the sun. So I set my camera up with a decent
>     field of view and magnitude gain and do a long run of exposures at a
>     reasonable exposure length with a short interval between each exposure.
>     At the same time I set HEAVENSAT to show the field of view and with the
>     full public SPACETRACK catalog I sit and watch and make a note of what
>     goes through the field. This is the easy part.
>
> (2) The "pain" comes when I have to examine the 100 or more images taken
> over
>     a period of say an hour the next day. If anything seen the object in
> the
>     image has to be marked for measurement. Sometimes there is a nil return
>     but usually several objects, most already known. APEX then measures and
>     identifies, where possible, what is what and puts the data in IOD
> format.
>     The rest you know.  It is a slow process, taking about 2-3 hours to go
>     through a 100 images. Its quite suprising how many objects are missed
>     in "real time" - ie when looking at the image on the monitor after
> being
>     taken.
>
> (3) I still have about 500 images of other fields to still examine :-((((
