Hello all!
 
I am new to this forum and after getting my first real telescope (Sky-watcher 200p flextube), i have been having a blast! best way to distress during Covid times.  
 
Anyway, here is my first "decent" attempt at taking a photo through the telescope.  There is no processing involved and obviously this was untracked as its a manual dob.

Can't wait to get a little refractor to start doing long exposure imaging!
 
So glad i found this place...

Thanks everyone!

ah yes, I'm well aware of how addictive it as at this point (outside almost every clear night now, trying to get through the messiers) smile.gif
