NOTES-

The last week of observations with the widefield setup has been done with the Watec Ultimate. I sent the PC164EX to corrupt a fellow
observer to the Dark Side of video..

Was aiming for NOSS 8 E, F, H and NOSS 5 D.. Saw none of them in Aquila +/- 2 min +/- >3 degrees to mag 8+.. STSS Demo pair was by
accident while waiting for NOSS 8 E & F, respectively..

I can't find AEHF 3. Looked an hour later than previously to improve the phase angle and searched beyond both the Classified and INT
predictions. Saw many GEO's but could ID them all, since I "fixed" Heavensat.. I'll wait and hope someone finds it, then try again
and see if I am capable of ever seeing it..

Didn't want to go away empty handed, so hit Mercury 2r with the LX200 driven ST80..

No more (likely) until Thursday night at the earliest..
