There hasn't been much dark sky lately, but it was dark tonight. I dunno why, but I figured I'd try M31 again. I'm not sure what I expected, but I suppose it's better than the last M31 shot I took:

From the "I ought to try that again" list. My last shot of M76 was pretty iffy - it's not even clear that you could see the nebula. This one's still not much (hey! M76 is pretty faint) but you can see it:

I've been messing around lately with an extesion tube for my Barlow lens which modifies it from a 2X to a 3X barlow. Just like when I started using the Barlow, I've had a lot of trouble getting targets into the field. I managed to get Jupiter tonight, though - and the results were pretty impressive:

I tried for a while, but I couldn't get Saturn into the field.
