Short .gif from a .ser video, captured last night (12th) with my ASI385MC and the supplied all-sky-lens.

We had a lovely clear night last night. The best we've had in ages. The battery died on my old laptop - probably due to the sub zero temperature - so only managed a few 5 minute videos. I saw lots more before I decided to set up the camera. 

Tonight; peak; is completely clouded out! Surprise, surprise!!

I also had my Mother-in-laws dog as a stargazing companion/hot water bottle.  Excuse the finger in the shot, my wife is a bit of a technophobe!

Nice to see someone somewhere had a clear sky 

Yes, I was very surprised as it definitely wasn't forecast. Peak night/morning was 50% cloud until about 00:20 (30 minutes before peak) when the clouds rolled in to about 99.9% until I gave up and came in at about 01:30.
