Hi Brian,

Congrats on a beautiful new scope it has a great focal length for planetary imaging. You must get yourself a X2 Powermate  it  increases your Image size greatly  http://www.telescopes.com/telescope-accessories/barlow-lenses/televue25xpowermate114inch.cfm .Then get yourself some bobs knobs they are fantastic for collimating your scope in seconds. this means you will not be putting a screwdriver near your corrector plate in the dark  http://www.bobsknobs.com/Celestron/SCT/C11met.htm  here is some info for you too http://sctscopes.net/SCT_Tips/Maintenance/Collimation/collimation.html. Sorry for throwing so much at you  but if you want to get great images 99.99% happens out at the scope and 00.01% is processing it's going to be a great time for you welcome to the world of planetary imaging. If you have any questions just give me a bell

Carl
