Clouds drifted by for several hours this evening but it eventually became clear at 21:00. The seeing wan't great but the moon was high in the sky.  I think my IR pass images of the moon look a bit strange so I chose a red filter instead. It still seems to help with the seeing and produces a more natural image.
