With some help from fellow forum members I was able to get my camera attached to my telescope.  I know it is nothing special, but it was very enjoyable to get some shots last night.

Good first image for your efforts.  But, not the "First Shot of the Moon" which took place back just before the US Civil War if memory serves.

You got me on that one. Almost like a “shot” across my bow.  I fixed the title.

I always hesitate to make a well-meaning and humorous comment like that because sometimes people take them the wrong way and get agitated.  Thank you for getting the humor.
