    NOTES:
    ----------
    (1) Poor conditions - very high humidity which later caused me
        to have to shut down as I was observing through mist.
    
    (2) Still some more images to process - dont know if there will
        be anything worthwhile as observing conditions were putrid.
    
    (3) Lost a fair bit of time as result of major computer crash
        and then quite a delay before the trimble GPS system would
        get a GPS lock - the CCD capture program will not work
        until it has GPS lock.
    
    Cheers
