Living in the Northwest is a big challange for astronomers. The clouds seem to be a fixed structure in the sky. On Saturday, the 19th the Cloud god made a mistake and let a clearing appear for a short time, just long enough for me to get a good shot of the Moon. I have a bunch  of trees in my yard so the only place I could see the Moon was in the front corner of the yard. Since the Moon was my target, I did not even power up  the mount, just pointed at the moon and snapped away.
My mount, a SkyWatcher HEQ5 PRO was very solid. I have a TPI leg spreader installed and it made the mount steady enough that I was able to focus using live view at 10x on the Canon 7D.You can view the photo at:
