I got a nice new telescope a few months back but have not had a chance to use it until last night. We are at my Mom's in Phoenix where it is less foggy, wet and it actually seems a little darker but probably not. Anyway here are the goods. Be sure to click on the images fot the larger versions.
M42. Very first picture!
M42 after a little more fiddling.
Same image unedited.
Eskimo Nebula a bit closer and tweaked.
Took some pictures of Saturn too but I need to stack them and dont have the software on my travel computer.
