Still you got some good shots.

My camera is so cheap I just get two white dots.

I could have tried my work camera, but it is set up for close ups, and I don't like changing the settings too much, as I am not a good photographer.
I’m just glad my husband had time to help me with the attachment or I would have just had a blurry mess. He has way more patience than I do. 

I don’t like messing around with camera settings either. I used to want a good camera but I probably wouldn’t be able to operate it. I just use my phone.

That's EXCELLENT @VioletDove. I can see the rings of Saturn. They said we should be able to see Jupiter's moons, but I have yet to see anyone with photos that close or clear.

Great job!   minusculegoodjob

Jupiter’s moons showed up so perfect through the telescope but no matter how much we tried we couldn’t get them very clear in a photo. I can kind of make them out if I zoom in on the picture I took. I was very happy Saturn’s rings showed up though.

@VioletDove, I do see a very, very tiny, faint dot that I think is probably one of the moons.

Awesome!   smallawesome

If you click on the image in this post by @NightskyeB4Dawn you can see the 4 Galilean moons of Jupiter in the bigger image that results. Jupiter is the bigger "star", and the moons are pinpoints of light strung out in a line going through it from upper left to lower right, with one being right on the upper limb of Jupiter.

The oblong "star" is Saturn, which appears oblong because of the rings. If you look close enough, you can see the gap between the rings and the planet itself.

All of these light sources combined last night to create a single bright "star" as seen from the ground here with the naked eye.

Here is the image, more or less full size:
