Tonight is cloudy.....but last night for me was very good in the Los Angeles area. I had my 12" out last night. ...caught six craterlets in Plato.... Saw 15 craterlets of the Davy chain.... Lots of small craterlets around the straight wall. This was around 500-600x.  ...seeing at times would "pop" for a split second and that's when things would reveal themselves.
