Astrofest scope in action

Some shots of my telescope doing its thing at Astrofest. In the first one you may be able to make out the Southern Cross/Crux in the defocused stars (shows their colour better) just above the counterweights on the mount. And in the second image the bright crescent moon, then above left is Jupiter and the Spica.
