    NOTES:
    ---------
    (1) One of those rare good nights. Light breeze from the south blew away
        all the industrial pollution. Seeing also quite good.
    
    (2) Recovered USA 237 - only moved a short distance eastward.
    
    (3) First time Ive seen a DSP cover - normally ignore them but tried one
        and was fortunate enough to see it whilst it was bright for a short
        period - easy object but long invisibility-did not try to determine
        period.
    
    (4) Changed my observing technique slightly - will result in greater
        efficiency - details only relevant to my observing procedure.
    
    (5) Observed Comet Lemmon - heading northwards - worth looking at as it
        should have its tail for quite a few months. Also saw Comet Panstarrs
        for the first time - bright naked eye object when sky dark enough.
        Looks like it will produce quite a nice show - also heading
        northwards.
    
    (6) May have one or two of the commercial satellites mixed up due to
        proximity to one another-didnt bother too much with that problem
        as not important. Strays only reported since by-product of the
        APEX reduction program.
    
    (7) Still have a few fields to examine where satellite predicted was
        not seen - dont expect anything startling as first look failed to
        show them.
    
    Cheers
    Greg
