Follow up from prior night

Follow up from last night's attempts. The first is M37 an open cluster, not particularly outstanding but rich with stars. Next is the first attempt with eyepiece projection, using 1.25" eyepiece adapter, camera adapter, and 5mm ultrascopic to go 140x. Unfortunately, I realize now I should have moved to a nearby star for fine focus, rather than trying to do it with Saturn. Was difficult. Will throw in a 2x Barlow next time too for approximately 290x magnification. Should be interesting.
