Full Moon, Jupiter and new scope

Santa came in his brown deliver truck around 8 pm last night - yea! It was too late and the moon was too bright for much serious effort but I just had to take this new ES Ar-102 out for a quick spin in my driveway. Jupiter is the small dot by the moon. The camera made that moon streak, which I didn't intend but don't mind.

moon shot - 1/1600 sec, iso100, it was so bright I cranked the contrast up a bit on the image, but that 2 speed Crayford Focuser is a great thing.

Thanks - I will accept the blame for the next month of cloudy weather - which seems to be included with things like this 'at no extra charge'!
