Thanks for the log SBGrad. Small typo, NJ 521 should be 169146 I think.

Yes, 521 is indeed 169146. Fixed above. I was pulling BUNOs off the RAW shots on my memory card, not even doing any editing, and made the typo putting it down on paper.

Great reports from KNZY! Can you confirm that 169206 on 16 November was NJ577 and not 517 please?
Thanks
