    Two of the four observers present witnessed the  transit.  Both used small 
    refractors. A third observer using a small  refractor the transit.  I tried to 
    record the transit with my 10" dob and a  Meade electronic eyepiece.   The 
    observed track was a few minutes of  arc above the predicted track (it was 
    supposed to track just above Tycho) and  out of my FOV.   Time to get a focal length
