    I think (conclude) that your original thought of time being in error
    was correct.  Yesterday I ran a curve fit on your Betelgeuse hs data
    and came up with reasonable results for UTC time exactly 8 minutes LATER.
            UTC             Tow/Away
            ---             --------
            09:36:29        1.7 A
            09:37:34        2.6 T
            09:38:34        2.4 T
    There appears no doubt that you were observing Betelgeuse because of its
    brightness in that portion of the sky. (the question was raised earlier
    by someone).
    I also examined your other body sights closely and find they are as good
    as one could expect from your platform.
    Also: with the altered time on Betelgeuse fits well for any Fix using
    bodies 2-3 and 1-2-3
    How you may have arrived at a time with 8 minutes difference is in your
    ballpark! :)  I could only make a wild guess because your hack method
    is strange to me.
    Any further reflections?
