NOTES:
-------
(1) Transparency good but frequent gusts of wind ruined some exposures.

(2) Basically went for the fainter objects that are not frequently
    observed. I had to use relatively long exposures as most of the
    objects were variable so produced relatyively long trails of
    variable intensity so sometimes the derived position will show a
    little scatter depending on where APEX thinks the centre of the
    trail is.

(3) Several ISON objects observed.S0 64800 running close to predictions
    - few seconds error. SO 37600 running early by a few minutes and
    SO 144402 running a little late.

(4) Now that I have removed the IR filter in the optical train Ive either
    gained magnitude sensitivity or the algorithm used to derive
    magnitudes gives different answers for IR filter vs no filter.
    Should not really make a significant difference as star magnitudes are
    used for the magnitude derivation - I have nothing to do with the
    magnitude estimate if done by APEX.

Cheers
Greg
