    NOTES:
    ------
    (1) Good session - seeing fair, transparency quite good but a bit
        windy.
    
    (2) 96044 - thought I could see it at times but the measurements
        appear erratic so probably NOT seen.
    
    (3) If I feel energetic tomorrow I will check and see if anything
        worthwhile recorded by the video DVD system.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
