Sky viewing UPDATE

I'm still trying to configure the NexImage 5mp on my laptop. I am very impressed with the telescope. Really nice views of Jupiter and the Moon. Does not take long to get it set-up. I was going to go with a 10 inch but I think the 8 inch is the sweet spot. Well the first photo's I take I'll post soon.
