Hello all,

after a break because of clouds and rain between 19:52 and 21:21 UT I could observe 
visually again from 21:21 - 22:05 UT. I saw only 2 GIAs. Lim mag was around 4.8 mag 
with 60% obstruction (as was with the observation I posted earlier).

My video data gives the same result: only 7 or 8 GIAs were recorded during that 
time span. Now the sky is overcast again. I will stop my visual observation now 
while the video camera will observer till dawn.

Clear skies
