I managed to get out on Tuesday night to get a couple of pics of the moon with my scope and phone.

Kit used.

Moon full shot.

I also got one of Jupiter. Not the right area I know, buy cant be bothered to start a new thread.

If you look closely you can see the GRS.

I'm quite pleased with this image (although certainly nowhere near as good as what other people produce) I think it gives a fair approximation of what you can actually see with a small scope in a city centre.

anyway. Enjoy

Allan. Sort of yeah. I spent most of Monday night just doing visual on the moon, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Well all I can say great shots for a mobile phone :lol:

Stash. I use these.

And these.

They just fit together and you stick them over your EP and what you see your phone sees. Simple.

AP on a budget.

Love it - Haven't tried that route yet - just stuck The Smartphone on the Camera thread on the Bresser to use at for the SkySafri plus / Google Sky map.

 

Thanks for the Info Tobias
