Interesting to see how to get another comparison. At the time I didn't know any other way to get an estimate so I just moved on, I can't remember what the figure was that I was trying to confirm, something like mag 21 like you.

Ahh, very good. I'm in awe of people who actually get to the point of submitting something to the MPC ... I got half way there but it was a big leap to actually have something sure enough to send to MPC so combination of things I moved on to another project
