    Thank you David and all who have alerted me to this service. One list member has tried it, but the results seem false. I
    have asked him to considering some different settings for the field size. My guess is that it is at least 5 deg, up to
    several tens of degrees. I tried spotting the four brightest stars in SkyAtlas 2000.0, but nothing jumped out at me.
    To Bob King: I have no idea of the actual time or direction.
