Subj:   New offpoint OG.


In order obtain terminator images for correction of the 11-12 April 1993
Spartan observations we require new OG commands to duplicate the
pointing at that time.

         Spartan '93 Terminator Offpoints

	"EAST"		East  6.09 arcmin
			North 1.83 arcmin

	"WEST"		West  3.15 arcmin
			North 1.75 arcmin

I recognize that it may not be possible to achieve such offpoint
precision but I've given the full accuracy in the numbers which have
been derived by comparing the suncenter locations of the following 

	11-Apr-93 12:26:46	Spartan east offpoint
	12-Apr-93 11:26:07	Spartan west offpoing
	 2-Dec-94 17:28:32	Present Yohkoh pointing

Thank you for your help in preparing the OG commands and in
securing these important terminator images.
