I think we need to update Wil Milan's Moiston (tm) theory.  Apparently sending 
e-mail message about observing plans across the internet causes Moistons (tm) 
to be released into the atmosphere.  The last three time I attempted to go out 
observing, I e-mailed my intentions, and got clouded out.  On Thursday, I went 
out, but didn't
e-mail anyone, and Viola, no Moistons (tm).  Maybe we need to start 
communicating in person (I have a feeling that voice messages across the phone 
line will release Moistons (tm) also).  I won't be able to make it tonight, so 
that might help.

By the way, it was clear at Flatiron, but seeing and transparency was poor (I 
rated it a 5 for both) and there was some problems with the wind.  A 20" dob 
scope makes a nice wind vane.
