Last year I sold my deep sky imaging telescope as I was simply not using it anymore.  A few weeks later I ended up buying a second hand telescope that is a lot more powerful than my old one but it is more designed for visual use.  While I will not be able to get the really long exposure nebula/galaxies/clusters type images anymore this new telescope does allow me to zoom in and image planets and the moon in much greater detail than before.  I took this "first light" image of Saturn back in July last year and I hope to do a lot more planetary imaging this year and build up to better and better quality.
