Saw the clear weather coming and got excited. All right. I can shoot my wide-field, barn door tracker shot of the Orion constellation. Started to review the weather sites. Most looked good but oddly Clear Outside said heavy clouds. Complete disagreement. Weird. But then, on checking Good To Stargaze, I realised, the Moon was going to be bright. Gah. Oh oh, and where was it going to be sitting? I had hatched this idea, this imaging target, ahead of the OSC event. But that was a week ago, near the new Moon phase. Fired up Stellarium and noted Luna parked right over top Orion. And all the wind went out of my sails... Frack!
