Hi all,

        Thanks to Mike, Bjorn, & Allen for the notes on NOSS 2-1.  As
Brian mentioned
the outrider "E" was brighter than C & D and was the first one I spotted
Polaris.  Around 30 degrees the other two became visible.  I was using
10x40's.  They
were not visible by naked eye. I'm guesstimating mag 4 to 5 on C & D and
close to
3.5 to 4 on E.  One of them eclipsed a mag 4-5 star in the east at
02:16:55.3.  Hoping to
get another shot at them tonight and a better RA, DEC and time

Clear skies
