NOTES:
--------
(1) Did not expect to get very much as scheduled to loose power at 2000UT
    for 2 hours as a result of South Africas several power supply problem-
    total darkness for an extended period can now happen anytime. However
    power did not go off as scheduled. Moonlight was a bit of a problem
    as I specifically went for the objects not seen recently - most of
    them on the faint side.

(2)Had a bad beginning. Something went wrong and as later found out the
    elevation pointing was 2 degrees out despite having calibrated as
    normal so missed USA 186 which was however seen in the wide angle
    video as running about a minute early. Also had problems with
    FIA Radar 3 rocket, seen but, due to power cuts today, I have not had
    enough time to identify the images fields as noted azimuth/elevations
    are not correct-one reason why narrow field observing can be a problem.

(3)Tomorrow I plan to tackle my focal reducer problem again ( in between
      power cuts ) so will not be observing tonight

(4) Due to deliberate non-maintenance of the generators in all of South
      Africa's power station over a period of about 5 years, the generators
      are now steadily failing.     Currently all of South Africa is 
facing a 37%
      reduction  in power generation. The problem is expected to get worse
     and is  expected to continue at least for another 3-5 years and a 
total
     collapse appears very likely so one does not only have to contend with
     weather but  availability of power!

Cheers
Greg
