Started by looking at the Moon which was under Jupiter to the west (looking south). Moon was in a waxing crescent. Nice view of both lit and dark portions of moon.
Second observation was M42 in the sword of Orion. With the 20 x80's you can see the stars and clouds making up M42. The cloud was white but clear. This was cool!
Third observation was Sirus coming up from the East horizon. Sirus was very bright with blue, red, clearly visible in the Binocs. Sparkling nicely almost to the point of thinking it was a long distance plane. Very bright! There did appear to be some heat coming up causing the twinkling affect but overall very cool!
