A dilemma

When I'm over here to use the telescope, I always feel torn between wanting the moon up with some high cirrus to make the timelapse look really pretty, and having the sky dark and cloudless so that astronomy can be done. At least I'm always happy with whatever I get. There was a bit of a screwup this time - one of the schedulers got confused and canceled my time this week. I found out three hours before I was supposed to start. Luckily, this telescope is run in a very different way than most. They had just planned to do "training ops" and other time-killers that don't actually require the telescope. I got to use it anyways.
