    NOTES:
    --------
    
    (1) Finally a nice night after prolonged spell of cloud and rain-
        sometimes trackable but every time I did predictions and
        wanted to track it clouded over.
    
    (2) OTV 3 NOT seen - reasonably good pass so would have expected
        to see it - got fooled by something else.
    
    (3) Still lots of high altitude stuff - hope to report tomorrow
        but all the active geosats appear to be in their expected
        positions.
    
    (4) Expect to add new piece of equipment this weekend-an 8inch
        f/4 newtonian on its way to me as I type. This might enable
        me to get about a magnitude fainter.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
