Final Useable  frame timed  at 03h 24m 26 sec.  Two  further  frames  taken  within  the last  60 seconds  before  the star  vanished were  lost due to Camera  shake .  Clumsy Astronomer's  fault.!!!  During the  time of  observation and imaging the  sky was very  hazy  hence the  poor contrast  between  the Lunar Limb and the Sky also the  atmosphere was  quite  unsteady perhaps only A 3 .  How ever a good night  when all said. .
