Anything going on tonight?  Sounds like it might clear up?

I went out on my driveway Saturday night. Was trying new software with the Mallincam. The attempt was a modest failure! But Jupiter, traveling on that high ecliptic line, is pretty amazing right now.

Any Messier marathon Friday night?  Looks like it might be clear... warm... breezy maybe.  Moon will set at 9:40 or so, but not that big, 10% illuminated.  Shouldn't be too bad.  Eagle Bluff open?
