First Light

What does an amature astronomer first do with a new telescope?

Point it at out the window and see if he can see anything, of course.  In my case, I used it to 
peer at the neighbor's much studied chimney.  It's much studied because I frequently use it to test new astro-gadgets and align the optical paths of anything that needs aligned.

So, technically, first light on the new telescope came from the neighbor's chimney.

How does Santa fit?
But that doesn't really count as first light, does it?
