    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh    thanks Robert , you have just answered my earlier question 
    re the  launch period cut off.  :O)
    
    Similar observing conditions here........if the weather behaves , we should 
    have some good sighting opportunities.Problem is we are presently stuck in a 
    westerley stream of storms , bringing in heavy cloud and winds on a 
    depression driven  conveyor belt !
