The forecast was for clouds all night. So imagine my surprise that the night was clear!

 

Here's Jupiter right before it passed through zenith:

Oval BA swung into view right as Jupiter passed through zenith. Too bad the seeing deteriorated so quickly, only the first stack produced a usable image:
