    Seeing conditions not too good here this evening between 2100 and 2230 gmt ,
    but just above the haze level I was able to locate the five neatly stacked
    Hotbirds at 13 east , which were shining through quite well .
    Two further objects were observed at 16 east , one , Eutelsat W2 , the other
    most probably Sicral 1
    Still having probs with the geosat GoTo positioning , so guiding was done by
    Meade LX90
    25 mm eyepiece projection/webcam/ exp 10.5 secs
