Great Orion Nebula

Orion Sky View Pro 8" EQ
30 points

I traveled up to the Angeles National Forest to get to some darker skies. The only DSO that I found that night was M42. At first I wasn't even sure what I was looking at was even the nebula but as I increased the magnification it was clear this was it.

Moon

Celestron Nexstar 6SE
0 points

Tested new Neximage camera on the moon. Really cool!

Moon

Celestron Nexstar 6SE
100 points

Tested new Neximage camera on the moon. Really cool!

M67

Orion 10'' SkyQuest dobsonian
40 points

I observed M67 shortly after Praesepe and Jupiter, they made a pretty tight triangle. This particular open cluster isn't super impressive. I estimated about 50 bright stars and many more dimmer ones. The entire cluster fit into the FOV of my 25mm eyepeice, so it's not that large either. Worth a stop if you're in the area, though.
