Thin clouds spoiled the sats, but nice Moon this morning

When I came back from diner with friends around midnight, it was nicely clear. So I set the alarm-clock to see if I could catch the NOSS 3-4 duo in morning twilight.

Alas, when the alarm clock went off it turned out to be thinly veiled and impossible to observe satellites. So instead I took photographs of the waning moon. The best one is shown below. Like a few days ago, this one was made by just holding the Canon Ixus compact camera with its front lens on the eyepiece of the Meade ETX-70.
