    Greetings (again),
          I trust this time around I will have a complete message (:-)) ....
    the reference to the 300 mm lens should be that it is a telephoto and
    not a wide angle.
          Also, my daytime opportunity is due to Iridium 36 and at 19:23
    local time  and an altitude of 60 degrees (I will be 2.2 km from the
    flare center). If a telescope is required during photography (such as
    tracking, if necessary), I would prefer not to drive to the flare center
    due to logistical reasons (14" SCT with G11 Losmandy mount). Anyway, the
    intensity at the flare center is marginally higher at -8.1.
          My three night time opportunities will be with Iridium 60, 12 and
    16 and I will be 66.4, 9.1 and 28.8 km from the falre centers and
    occuring at 05:26 (alt 11 deg) , 21:02 (alt 55 deg) and 20:56 (alt 55
    deg), respectively.
