Hi, I got a new scope, I dont know what the powers on it are, but I can say its about 5 inches wide, and so far I have seen the moon, saturn and mars, but Im short on otehr stuff to look at, there are no comets that are showing at this time according to major astronomy sites, so any advice on what to look at would be good. I also had scanned the skies on a clear night, lookign at stars,. when I saw somethign disk shaped and fairly dark orange, so I checked it out on this, and it was a christmas tree nebulae or something like that.

Try observing deep-sky objects from the Messier Catalogue then the Caldwell Catalogue. These are recommended for amateur astronomers. Here's a link... http://www.space-and-telescope.com/MessierObjects.aspx
