    At 22:47:40 local  HA predicted a 77degree pass for me , which would transit 
    within a few arc seconds of Mizar.
    Predicted magnitude was 6.3 (  4.2 by Calsky)
    Sky conditions were good and I centred the scope on Mizar with a 7 x 5 arc 
    minute FOV.
    Using this set up I can see down to about mag 8 or so.
    The camera was left running for 60 seconds either side of the pass time , 
    but nothing seen.
    Hopefully someone else has had better luck!
