Very cloudy on fixed date , conditions slowly improved at 8pm onwards.
Jupiter , can see the wave texture on the belt in 6" maksutov
m42 , in 5" SCT to my eyes can see slight nebulosity direct , quite obvious when adverted vision
Pleaides , 5" SCT with 32mm plossl it was a tight squeeze into the viewing angle

Heavy rain before the event, brought a smaller achromat refractor as I expected less than 50% chance.
