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

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.
