    NOTES-
    This is measured to the 1/8 inch with a 24" machinists rule, off of a 27" TV
    so the measurement is possibly limiting, but the timing is +/- 0.008s
    
    ALSO.. Something crossed the face of Jupiter in my 8x50 finder scope at 12h
    44m 13s. It *APPEARED* to move North from a 7 O'clock to 2 O'clock in the
    viewfinder, but the viewfinder is on an Equatorially mounted scope and, I
    think, inverted and backwards, which is far too much at 6 AM..
