    Pretty much. Knowing when to initiate those burns is the job of the rocket scientists. Thinking about the physics makes most people's head spin. Keeping the reference points separated in one's mind is a challenge. (An object going around another object that is spinning.) Unfortunately most of the reference material on the matter seems to be written by rocket scientists for rocket scientists.

    As I mentioned - reaching 61.5W was the point of new correction an orbit.

    It's a good target for the end of the correction ... 32 hours after the prior TLE.

    Satellite Longitude at Epoch ...

    Thu Jul 15 19:06:49 EDT - 65.1304006 West

    Time to gain some altitude and go back to 61.55 !!!
    (Or for me to find a better calculator? Are your coordinates "at epoch", P Smith?)

    At a moment when I load new TLE into Orbitron - practically for time of posting minus a minute or two.
