First Light - success!

Here's a picture of our set-up on our "First Light" test.

We managed to get about an hour of relatively cloud-free viewing early tonight, in which time we set up the scope, got the auto-alignment and tracking working beautifully, and used "Go To" to check out the Moon (very thin crescent, very low on the horizon, Jupiter (belts and 4 Galilean moons clearly visible), the Great Orion Nebula, and a few other stars, before the clouds closed in.

We were pretty happy with out first real run!
