    Congrats on bagging the two, the views in the scope are even better.

    It's the reason we all keep bino's in our kit, quick grab and go along with nice wide field views.

    Pleiades are always pleasing. And good capture of Mars. Let us know when you get to see them through your scope.

    That is how I first discovered the Pleiades using my Binoculars. Once you put a refractor of 5 or 6 inches on it then the views go from aww to wow fast.

    The Pleiades through binocular is very impressive.
    I would also suggest looking for Andromeda and the Orion Nebula. Both are great targets for binoculars. The Orion Nebula is easy to find. However, you will need to do a little searching for Andromeda.
    Once you get your scope up and running, go back and check these object out. You'll be impressed.
