Broken thin cloud here, it won't be fully clear I think but should be some gaps.

Well ... 6:30 looked like it would be promising here @ home ... and right now the clouds have rolled in  :no:

I'll give it another hour before I sort the scope out (I know ... 40 mins after first contact  :canadian:) ... but really, unless things change drastically in the next 20 mins ...  :'(

Well this was about maximum here for me, still dodging clouds (annoying because a couple miles away it was clear!)
