Re: LR Com Observations?

Doug, Tom and all,

It looks like it wasn't a bug in the query, just that the observations 
in the database don't meet the criteria to be included in the statistics.
I find 11 pairs of images from Tom's #2 camera with could have included 
this position. Of these, 9 of the pairs have problems with either the V 
or I images (or both).
And in the remaining 2 pairs, there is a large discrepancy between the 
number of stars detected in V vs. I.

For image JD 2452763.62887 - 2852 stars in V, 645 in I
For image JD 2452780.59346 - 2453 stars in V, 497 in I

As Tom said, perhaps a combination of clouds and bad luck.
