(200 words excerpt, click title or image to see full post)

Hey Space Placers!I took my first ever astropics using an iPhone 6s (dinosaur camera) and a telescope. I have to say I am pretty amazed by the results.The sky conditions were LOUSY due to a passing cold front and high winds. You could see the shimmering in the eyepiece and iPhone! BUT, the results were still pretty amazing, especially the second shot.Using an adapter to hold the phone - provided courtesy of astroshop.eu.com - the iPhone takes a photo of the eyepiece image with amazing results. You should be able to do this with a spotting scope and binoculars if they are mounted and you have a good cell phone holder like the Celestron NexYZI will be back out tonight and hope to get the planets Jupiter and Saturn.
