        looking for unknowns and getting familiar with what is visible and
        is using a 2 inch aperture finder mounted on his Meade reflector
        with a Meade DSI Pro II camera. All processing is done by Ian using
        APEX and he sends me the results to check that APEX has correctly
        identified the object. Sometimes this is a bit much for APEX so there
        are mis-identifications. I have corrected the obvious ones but in some
        instances there are several satellite clusters and its not immediately
        clear which object is which so there may be a misident.
    
    Cheers
