    NOTES:
    ------
    (1) Clear evening-sort of-but poor transparency due to high mist/smoke pollution 
    (?)
        on account of high humidity/no wind.  Naked eye magnitude limit about mag 3 
    to
        3.5.  Unable to do exposures longer than 18 seconds without the image
        being "whitened out". Seeing 10.8-10.9 arc sec which is quite good
        for my location.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
