80ED + Canon 35mm SLR

Hey everyone.. taken my first shots of the moon through my Skywatcher 80ED and a Canon 35mm SLR. Mounted to the scope with the adapter. I was using 1600 speed film and the exposures were around the 2000/sec mark. Is this up there with the results I should expect from this combination? or am I not doing something right. I have a Meade electronic eyepiece which I have not used yet, will this give me better detail? Obviously it will take me alot closer to the moon then my camera can. I have also posted I first shot of Orion.... Very beginer I know but im excited at what lays ahead.

Any tips would be much appriciated.
