I was lucky enough to get clear skies Christamas night. Here's a photo of me with my Celestron C8 set up in Alt-Az. Because of the roof behind me, I can only see N, NE, and NW. Lots of light pollution, not an ideal observation location but it's all I got right now for quick viewing. You can see The Sickle of Leo, Leo Minor,and the hind foot of the Great Bear behind me. Good luck and happy viewing.
