The First Imaging Session

Here's my first target with the unmodified QuickCam through the 15 mm Plossl on the C5+. It's not a great image, but I expect that the image quality will improve when I put it at prime focus later.

Ditto with this. I think this is the northwestern quarter of the moon, but I really don't remember for sure. Obviously the definition on the crater edges leaves something to be desired. It could be that the lens on the QuickCam is just too low quality for astronomical purposes. We'll find out with prime focus.
