Not bad, i got to see it. 

The sky was cloudy, so I had only a short view of vega, which I used as a aligmnent star for mout. Then the sofrtware crashed, but I was ok for finding the right area,using Alt Dec info. I then had a small opening in the cloud to aim at the approx area, using nearby stars.

I headed into work, and got a nasty suprise, it rained while there, so my mount got wet. Lucky for me, it was a light rain, and no damage was done.

It stayed cloudy most of the night, but clear in time for me and a customer, to see a pass of the iss, and another customer, I had told about the pass, got to see it from here he was at the time, as he's a taxi driver.

Couldn't spot the OTV, which was to pass low in the sky.

But I still got to see, thanks to my video gear :)

It passed near the cetus and above eta cetus.
