Due to a foot injury, the Chapmans weren't able to come with us. It was a beautifully clear night until around midnight. I made a list of objects seen (above) but for some reason did not enter all of them into the written log. 

Summer Triangle
Aquila, Cygnus, Lyra
Time:  9:45 PM
Equipment: Visual
Had to step closer to the shore to see the triangle above the trees. Very bright! All the associated constellations were easily identified naked eye.

Time: not recorded
Equipment: Binoculars 
I could see the two stars in binoculars with Alcor at 11 0'clock to Mizar. Did not see the double in Mizar.

Coathanger / Collinder 399 / Brocchi's Cluster
Time: not recorded
Equipment: Visual + Binoculars 
I could see this object naked eye but did use binoculars to view the 10 stars in the asterism.
