Hi there,

yes, fixing the eccentricity for this one pass observation helps with some
parts. :)

1 00000U OrbDet   21182.06166389  .00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    05
2 00000  97.4895 310.8076 0000000   0.0000  49.1791 15.09878256    01

When I compare this and my previous TLE with the one of 48943 looks good
and it is also one of the launched ones
https://www.n2yo.com/satellite/?s=48943#results
but it is also not yet fully identified (at least I did not find it clearly
stated yet).
Here it is still Object BS [0] and other sources I found say it could be a
cubesat. The latter I doubt I could have found in the video.

The video of Nick just has one passage and that is already super cool to
have! :)
I use it to plausible check my algo. It seems okay with it.
Finding the same satellite again in the next passage in a video will be
interesting :D. Maybe you have read about LEDSat where they test a new
"colouring" idea to give cubesats (and of course every other satellite)
their own colour code. That would help distinguish them and also to find
them again easier. That is a cool project.

Until then, I will try to improve my algo with the data I have. :) Thanks
all of you so far. :)
