    Really good! The propeller is clear in that one. How many frames stacked for this one, the same?

    It was 60 10 second frames again at ISO 800. I think the focus is better this time as well but the main improvement definatly comes from the upgrade in scope size.

    Hi Swindan, nice, I'm just starting out and am also am using a Skywatcher Starquest 130p with Samsung Galaxy S9.  What eyepieces, filters are you using?

    It's a 25mm wide field. No filters. So nothing fancy. Amazing what you can get with even basic stuff. 

  3. wonderful clear skies tonight so had a go at M13 with my smartphone again. can clearly out the main center of the cluster as well as HIP 8184 at the top and HIP 81673 on the bottom left. roughly 10 minuets of exposure over 60 frames ISO 800. amazing what you can get with a phone most people have in their pockets.

  4. its out of focus and had to zoom into the final photo to get a better view of M92 but its mine and I took it so chuffed with myself. 1st attempt at astrophotography of a deep sky object. took 30 10 second exposures and stacked them to make the final. unfortunately I appear to have been slightly out of focus and needed to use a higher magnification eye piece so I don't have to zoom in afterwards. taken on a smart phone attached to a sky watcher 130p. can I hope for much better with a smart phone or do I really need to jump in and get a DSLR?
