    NOTES:
    ----------
    (1) Prolonged cloudy spell slowly driving me mad :-))
    
    (2) For a change a near perfect night except for rather high humidity.
        Seeing about 9 arc seconds. Transparency good.
    
    (3) Couple of satellites not seen but may be due to minor problems I had.
    
        Searched for UFO F11 - not seen - reasonably confident it has moved.
        DSP F18 not seen - may be my problem.
        MAGNUM 1 not seen - may be my problem
        FLEETSATCOM 7 not seen
        USA 227 - moved some time ago
        DSP F14 r - looks like its lost
        VORTEX 1 r - not seen - may be my problem
        DSCS 3-07 - not seen - moved?
    
        "my problem" means I wasnt looking at the right place most likely-
        thats the problem with a small field of view.
    
    (4) MERCURY 1 and MERCURY 2 in same field of view.
    
    (5) A NAVSTAR passed through field of view of one of the satellites-
        very easy and quite bright.
    
    (6) The 8 inch f/4 reflector slowly drawing closer to becoming operational?
        The original aluminium surface mirror coating has been removed so mirror
        can now be parabolized. I do see a slight problem - the mirror is only 1/2
        inch thick which is pushing one's luck - guess this was another way the
        manufacturer ( Skywatcher? ) could produce such a cheap reflector.
    
    (7) The latest version of Simone's satellite bulk elements "getter" has
        problems for those observing high altitude satellites. Disable the mc.get
        file as this adds Mikes CLASSIFIED.TLE elements to the SPACETRACK file  but
        the high altitude satellite elements are for last epoch OBSERVED which can
        place the satellite a rather long way off, so disable mc.get and then add
        Mikes INT files to the BULK.TXT files from SPACETRACK.  Suggest users use
        the last version 2 of Simone's program until this is sorted out.
    
    
    Cheers
    Greg
