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
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. :)
