    NOTES:
    ----------
    (1) Prime purpose was to observe Comet Lemmon - nice tail, but seeing was
        so good I decided to do a few goesats.
    
    (2) Dont find a match of 99999 99 543A so possibly unknown -easy object
    
    (3) MERCURY 2 may have moved - couldnt find it but didnt battle too hard
        as field of view too small- will search for it later with a wider
        field of view.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
