Nightly Observing Log.....

I am setting up a nightly observing log for each nights imaging session. 

So far...this is what I have. 

Set date and time on computer using time.gov.  Also write down in log.

Write down location with lat, long, elevation. I have three primary locations plus will be traveling.

Equipment log: Mount, Telescope, Camera, filters, focuser setting, cooling temperature, binning.

Weather from nearest National Weather Service station. Temperature, humidity, barometer, dew point, visibility.

Weather from Atmosperics app: Cloud cover, Transparency, Seeing, Wind, Temperature, Dew Point, Moon phase and rise time.

Local weather comments to supplement above.

From Sky Meter:  darkness readings for N45, O90, S45, W45, E45

I am debating whether to add the file location of flats and darks to the page.

I am trying to limit the amount of information so it all fits on one page. 

Anything I missed??
