    NOTES:
    ---------
    (1) Main purpose of session was to observe FIA RADAR 1 for the first time
    -nice bright easy one, and also to observe the SBSS objects. However cloud
    rolled up 15 minutes before passes occurred so no luck with SBSS. Will try 
    again
    tonight IF clear..
    
    Cheers
    Greg
