I did get a little observing done. Couldn't get the view finder to work, so just turned it off and observed a few stars without it. Unfortunately there was a haze on the horizon which obscured a lot of stars. I was able to look at Sirius and a few more small ones, but couldn't see the star patterns well enough to figure out which they were. At about 6:30, the haze grew to cover most of what what I could see, so I just decided to call it a night and go in before I got too cold. It's about 39 degrees Fahrenheit right now.
