All I could say way "oh man" these are just wonderful! I hope I can keep learning on my Orion Observer 80ST and move up to something more. I would so love to see something like that through my lens, beautiful!! Denise

Thanks everyone for the comments. It was an impressive show. I had a second scope set up for visual and did get to see the second shadow in breaks in the clouds.
