Trying Out My New Camera

After breaking the lens on my old and faithful point and shoot, I finally bit the bullet and got a new camera.

I took it out yesterday to catch the Moon and Saturn close together in the night sky. I still have a huge learning curve when it comes to astrophotography, but I think a few of these turned out all right. I hope you enjoy them.

The Moon, Saturn and a dirty lens I think. A nice effect, I just hope it is not a defect in my lens.
