Lacrosse 4

Wednesday, August 31, 2005, 00:27:31 LT

Slightly hazy, but reasonable conditions this evening.

Obtained two instead of one images of 00-047A (Lacrosse 4)
spaced 1 minute apart as it traversed Pegasus, and hence 4
points. The second pic shows the typical orange colour of the
Lacrosse satellites, due to orange metal foil covering, rather
well. The sat seemed some 0.15 seconds late relative to elset
05240.93550308

I might give Lacrosse 3 a try later tonight as well, if my
alarm clock cooperates. Yesterday it did not and I woke up 30
minutes too late....

Experimenting with a slightly different camera setting today
(other color/contrast setting). I have some idea that trails come
out better as a result.
