Hi everyone a few nights ago i decided to get my telescope out and view the moon, as you do.
and it looked good as allways but my telescope is limited to strength, so i thought i'd get my mobile wich has extra zoom.... and got these pictures, if you dont like em thats cool, just thought i'd put it out there













So i hope you like them.....

The pictures are very good considering they are taken with a mobile phone... Just goes to show what's all around us, if you just take the time to look..

Excellent

yeah its amazing how quick the moon moves out of the view of the lens, I line it up and then go to show my partner and by the time she looks its almost moved out of the view.

Did you even at least try calling them?

Phones are for calling home, have you never seen E.T. ?

He never said "E.T. Photograph Hooommee."

what a conundrum!

There's a bracket/attachment I've seen online which will hold an iPhone over the eyepiece. I've tried free-handing myself, and I got a few good shots, out of 50 tries. Shaky hands, wind buffeting the scope, and earth spin do make it a challenge, but it was fun.

I, am in no way, sure about this. But could it not be that there is simply a layer of harder material below the dusty surface? Not a artificial metallic one, but just a layer of rock that is hard enough to not be deformed by an asteroid impact.

Im not sure if this could happen so evenly on such a massive scale. But the earth has rather even layers of different densities. So it is much more likely that the impacts stop at the same depth because it is the maximum depth it can penetrate before it is stopped by the denser layer of the moon.

Lovely pictures. And taken with a cell phone. Imagine that.

It begs the following question:

If you can get such photos of the moon with a cell phone, why can't anyone get decent photos of all those UFOs instead of the blurry, grainy ones we always see?

Amazing what you can do with a cell phone these days. The 4th one is my favorite

Wow, great pics for a mobile phone. Wish I had a telescope.

These must have been taken over a few nights, the phase of the moon is different in the photos. You should try the same trick with Saturn or Jupiter. I would be interested to see the results.

Mobile phone camera? Wow, I think NASA needs to lower their budget and invest in some of these badboys!

Great pictures my friend. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing!

You beat me to it. I was going to say that he must have taken them over the course of a couple weeks. The moon is in vastly different phases in these pics.

for some reason i can't get good focus on saturn or jupiter maybe i'll try to use the extra zoom on my phone
but the more zoom i use the blurry it gets....
