Met some old astronomy buddies:-

 My simple setup:-

Mostly cloudy, the only successful shot was taken at during a cloud break of around 8s, but the exposure itself took 4s, so only had a few seconds for centering the target and focus.

The only successful shot, 400mm at f/5.6, ISO 800, 4s exposure:-

Some less than successful shots:-

I was captured by TVB:-
