I was playing with my uncle’s new telescope this weekend and managed to get the above image of the moon using my iPhone 4 and holding it to the eyepiece of the scope. I couldn’t believe it came out! I tweaked the sharpness, contrast, and added a border using the iPhone Photoshop application on my iPhone.
We picked up a Canon attachment to mount a DSLR to the telescope to photograph planets and stars (hopefully). Cannot wait to try it out over the next few weeks!
