Galaxy XI deployment

Some on the list may find this of interest.  It's a news
release about a new Hughes geostationary satellite, Galaxy
XI, that was launched by Ariane back in December.  They had
a camera placed aboard so that they could monitor the
deployment of the solar panels after the bird got on
station.  It's primarily Hughes propaganda, but the pictures
are kind of neat:
