Thanks for your comments Mirko. Yes, I may have been closer to seeing the notch as you describe it than I thought. With the rush of people wanting to observe I did not have the luxury of some quite time to myself to explore further. Hopefully there will be another opportunity.
I don't have any filters, so none on the night. Eyepiece was a Vixen NLP20. I am still exploring a choice of eyepieces for the NA140.
Yes, Ben Lomond was a good choice for the star party. It is the highest accessible altitude available in Tassie with accommodation. We bunked down in the Northern Tasmanian Alpine Club Lodge. The area is marginally above the snow line with old, underdeveloped ski runs. The ski season is short and fickle.
