Here is first light with my new William Optics Megrez 102. I also used a canon 350d camera.
I know the moon is an easy target and a DSLR not the best camera to use for lunar photography, but is was very cold that night.

Here are the Pleiades or M45 shot using a Meade LXD75 10" SNT and a canon 350d camera. A Bahtinov mask (which I make and sell on ebay under the name Star Sharp Focus Masks) was in place to produce the pretty difraction spikes. I think it looks pretty cool!
