    Great report, Tom!

    Man, I need to try the FB live one evening to see if I get any bites.

    Clear here this evening. I ran off a couple of lunar captures, swapped cams, and am sucking in an hour and a half on M97. Fairly soupy out so I am not expecting much.

    Thanks, Bryan! My CSC in my sigline is showing clear skies, but my actual sky is mostly cloudy. The stealth clouds are evolving!
