Good report and video :) I am observing and tracking asteroid 4 Vesta for some days this week near 6.5 apparent magnitude. Last night easy to see near border of Taurus/Cetus moving westward (retrograde) into Cetus. Binoculars show and my telescope views. The waxing gibbous Moon is getting brighter, 4 Vesta reaches opposition on the 12th, Full Moon period too. So far, I am still able to see 4 Vesta asteroid with brightening moon light nights. Viewing a Full Moon is not fun (as the report suggest) with telescopes - best viewed during other phases and with a good moon filter too. I especially enjoy viewing the Moon near First Quarter and Last Quarter phases. Very good terminator line relief and crater details.
