Well done, John. I have just been outside with my DSLR, and the clouds are rolling in quite nicely :-(

I set up the scopes the other night. Wonderful clear skies. Got polar aligned and popped inside to take care of the call of nature. I wasn't inside 5 mins and when I went back outside it was heaving down. Mad rush to get cameras and scopes inside and covers on!

Just popped out with the 10x50 bins, sky has cleared a bit, so I saw the large fuzzy very easily - just down from Pleiades.
