Video of the moon in overcast skies

The skies were looking relatively clear at dusk last night so I decided to setup in hopes of capturing the Horsehead Nebula, though as luck would have it, the clouds started rolling in just a few minutes after it got dark enough to see stars in that area of the sky.

Because the cloud cover was relatively light, some features of the moon were still visible through the haze to the naked eye, so I thought it might be fun to swing the 'scope around and take a look. Obviously, the view wasn't super sharp, but seeing the way the clouds passed overhead made for an interesting sight. 

The resolution on the video is up to 1080p - enjoy :)
