I am due to get my very much long awaited 14.5" dob in mid Nov. and would like some ideas for a first light object. I am partial to dso's. Can someone share an idea?
Thanks to all

DARK skies, OIII filter, and about 100x on the Veil Nebula. You won't be able to see the entire Veil complex with this magnification but the filamentary nature of this glowing supernova debris will boggle your mind. DARK skies rule.
