Back to the Telescope with Jupiter and the Moon

It's been far too long but I setup the telescope tonight, showed Connie the clouds of Jupiter and the Moon, and snapped a couple photos. Ideally, a couple pieces I bought to connect my camera to the 'scope would've worked perfectly but, lo, they didn't. The focus distance between camera and telescope needs to be reduced so I need to find another piece that helps shorten that distance. While troubleshooting the proper distance, however, I was able to manually move my camera in/out to get it in focus and snap the shots below.
