    Notes:
    -------
    (1) Conditions terrible - bright moon and very heavy dew- my optics could
        not cope with the dew so will have to install dew heaters as the dew
        caps are obviously not long enough.
    
    (2) All processing done manually. I upgraded APEX-II yesterday with the
        latest versions from the APEX site and now APEX does not work. I dont
        know if its a coincidence or not at this stage, so will install the
        older version on another PC and see what happens. Besides upgrading
        the version of APEX I made no other changes to the pc...
    
    Cheers
