Dear Larry,

your "error" leads to another point on the Lester circle, so no regret !

that is correct and the corresponding point on the Lester circle is the
reflection of X6 about the line through the centers of circumcircles of
T(6,14,17), and T(6,13,18).

1st bary :

5*a^14 - 21*a^12*b^2 + 41*a^10*b^4 - 38*a^8*b^6 - 7*a^6*b^8 + 49*a^4*b^10 -
39*a^2*b^12 + 10*b^14 - 21*a^12*c^2 +
44*a^10*b^2*c^2 - 44*a^8*b^4*c^2 + 80*a^6*b^6*c^2 - 146*a^4*b^8*c^2 +
155*a^2*b^10*c^2 - 50*b^12*c^2 + 41*a^10*c^4 -
44*a^8*b^2*c^4 - 53*a^6*b^4*c^4 + 88*a^4*b^6*c^4 - 251*a^2*b^8*c^4 +

49*a^4*c^10 + 155*a^2*b^2*c^10 + 90*b^4*c^10 - 39*a^2*c^12 - 50*b^2*c^12 +
10*c^14

index : 3.22223

The other point in message #5626 lies on the circles (6,13,17), (6,14,18)
and (5,6,E221) where E221 is the point on the Euler line such that
OE221=6/5 OG (vectors).

The line through those two points meets the Euler line at X381 = GH
midpoint.

The two points are different from point E380 of message #5622.

Unfortunately not. I use Cabri for my drawings.
