To clarify, when I saw the four Globalstar objects, the _leading_ and
_trailing_ objects were separated from each other by 1.5 degrees, with
the middle two objects within that 1.5 degree spread.  My original post
probably gave the impression that the separation between _each_ object
was 1.5 degrees, so I'm only posting this correction so that people don't
think I own a scope that can deliver a 4.5 degree FOV at 40x.  I wish!
