Well what a surprise, a break in the clouds but... windy as hell (46k), hard to stand straight.
Got a pic of the moon however Saturn etc no go it was too jumpy. Lots of turbulence looking at the moon.

Very nice moon shot and glad it cleared off some - that wind sounds rough though. It snowed a foot at my house last night-

Another clear night however the haze started to comer in.
No wind and was out for an hour before my fingers stiffened up.
Looking at the pics it looks like my collimation worked
