3 people. It wasn't much of a night but three of us held a work session, or rather two of us (Les and Sarah) kibitzed while Joe worked. Outside the night deteriorated from a handful of stars and three bright planets to Aldebaran, Jupiter and Saturn when Venus was obliterated. Soon we were down to Jupiter as a ghostly trace behind ever denser clouds. Then nothing.

Well at least Joe created to red filter screens to keep the monitor from blinding night vision. He also installed our new software (Maxim/DL) for processing CCD images.
