  1. From the album: iPhone 6 Plus Photo's

    Here is the first photo i have taken using my 'scope! I have sharpened up the image a tad in Photoshop
  2. From the album: Moon

    Post-processed in-phone using the Photoshop App. I quite like the details but the noise is pretty bad.

    moon 29/11/12

    From the album: Moon

    Moon taken on my iPhone afocally and hand held to Heritage 130P with Vixen NPL 10mm EP.
  4. A couple images I was able to take with my iPhone and my Dobsonian XT8. using the Camera +2 app Anyone know any other good phone apps? ?
  5. I haven't checked, but I am sure there are plenty of these around. I thought I would enter my daylight version as it is a little different. I followed the conjunction until it was lost in the glare and behind buildings, all in all a wonderful morning. Handheld at the eyepiece as normal for me using an iPhone 6 Plus. This is the last one I took that still showed all four moons despite it being 7.41am and relatively bright. Normal kit: Scope: Tak FC100DC (this is getting expensive...) Eyepiece: Need to check this! Will update when I have. Probably 12.5mm BGO at x59. Mount: AZGTi on Gitzo tripod Taken using Procam 4 and cropped and processed using PS Express, all on the phone.
  6. I took this image handheld at the eyepiece with a iPhone this evening. Seeing was fabulous tonight and the visual views quite amazing. This is an extremely poor representation of those views, but does show the GRS (squinting also helps ???) I can also just make out the dark oval in the NEB in line with GRS, plus the northern and southern temperate zones and belts.
  7. I had a quick session with my new to me 20x80 Opticron, Japanese made binos tonight. I have them tripod mounted using a trigger grip ball head which works very well. Lovely views of M42, trapezium split nicely and surprisingly a gentle green tint to the nebula. Anyway, the crescent moon was also looking lovely with prominent earthshine. There was a fair amount of CA as is to be expected, but still a nice sharp view along the terminator. Three shots here, all hand held at the binos. I made sure I focused the binos using my glasses first, otherwise the images are obviously out of focus! First one was exposed for the earthshine, the second is converted to mono to get rid of the CA and the third is exposed for the terminator. All tweaked on the phone using PS Express. Quite pleased with the results, given the inappropriateness for imaging of the kit used ?
  8. Hey folks, Here is an imagine from a stack of 6 images taken with my iPhone 6 plus using NightCap Pro shot through my little Celestron C90 Mak using the 32mm eyepiece and one of those cheap ($8) phone adapters sold on eBay. 1.8 X digital zoom, ISO 100, exposure 1/2 (F2.2) 1/2 second exposures. Photos captured on the last Friday in June from Ozark mountains in north central Arkansas, USA. Seeing coditions fair to poor due to extremely high humidity and very warm temperatures. No tracking and mounted to a VERY old SLIK tripod. I used Photoshop to gain a little detail by adjusting levels and brightness, and align the images, but little else. Aside from the moon this was my first attempt at any astrophotography aside from meteors, which are my real passion. There's nothing quite like seeing something billions of years old vanish in a flash. I am in the market for a GoTo equatorial mount, but not until I recover from orthopedic surgery being done tomorrow on a multiply fractured fibula which I suffered the second Monday in March that just won't heal. Maybe when I get such a mount my planetary AP will improve. Hopefully this photo isn't a terrible embarrassment. R
  9. Anyone got any experience with the Celestron NexStar Evolution 8? There doesn't seem to be much in the way of owner reviews out there and I can't figure out why.

  11. This one of M35 uses 6 different live photos, and three masks to fool around with exposure at different locations. The additional photo layers really helped to calm the blue noise.

  12. Hello all! I know this build is nothing compared to anything posted on this forum but still I thought it might be fun to share it... (don't laugh lol) I don't usually modify and build stuff, but since my brother won't bring the DSLR until the weekend, I thought I might make a simple iPhone adapter for the fun of it So I found this guide about a great idea on how to make one: http://telescopenewbie.blogspot.co.il/2013/01/iphone-telescope-adapter-smartphone.html I grabbed (and cleaned) a wide plastic bottle cap, and checked if it fits my eyepiece: (it does perfectly) The guide I followed used an iPhone case with a plastic back, but I didn't have one... but I did have a couple of "bumper" cases. So I just super-glued a plastic sheet that I've cut out from a case that some other product came in, and I've cut a hole in the plastic sheet where the camera lens is. Then I've cut a hole in the bottle cap, and super-glued it to the plastic sheet.. trying to center it as much as I could... Later I'll add a strip of paper around the inner-edges of the cap, to protect the eyepiece rubber. So the iPhone goes in the case, and the case with the cap goes on the eyepiece, and the eyepiece goes in the telescope... pretty simple and effective... but will it hold? I haven't tried it outside yet, as the moon is already down and the sky is cloudy anyway... but first stress-tests seem to indicate that it holds the iPhone pretty well... The real test will be next night (hopefully). But it seems like I managed to get it centered kinda well... here's a full frame shot that I took with an eyepiece connected to the adapter (pointing it close to another bumper case)... Hopefully it will make it easier to take a quick snapshot of what I'm observing (maybe for a quick share on Twitter or something ). Test images (and maybe a story on how my iPhone got shattered on the ground).. coming tomorrow night
  13. I know its not very impressive to take pictures with iphones… but some of these are kinda nice xD oh well here ya go!.
  14. Photo of this evening’s moon, taken with an iPhone 6. No filters or edits.
  15. Taken in Scarborough, North Yorkshire on 16 December 2017. My main aim with this image was to show those just starting out in the world of astrophotography what can be achieved on a budget with simple and affordable equipment. Using my iPhone and the NightCap app set to Star Trails mode I captured this as one image over a period of four hours (hence the number of airplane trails!). I then edited the image on my iPhone using the Snapseed app to darken the sky and bring out some colour in the star trails. I was very pleased with the outcome given that all of this was achieved using only an iPhone and readily available, easy to use apps.
  16. Hi, This probably old hat to everyone, but I found out about a setting in iOS 10 that allows you to do a full red screen; I know astronomy apps have a night vision mode but I find the keyboard is normal light in skyguide, or else I accidentally press the home key. It also lists a shortcut to set the red screen via pressing the home key three times in quick succession. Anyway, the details are in the link below. https://ios.gadgethacks.com/how-to/keep-your-night-vision-sharp-with-ios-10s-hidden-red-screen-0173903/ Dave
  17. Hi all I don't have a fancy camera for taking pictures of what I see so I have been trying to use my iPhone. I have seen in the photo competitions section some pictures taken with smartphones, but I think I am missing something as mine are rubbish! Any advice? Thanks in advance. Hayley

  20. My attempt at capturing an image of the moon at perigee early last week (2018-01-02). Imaged with an iPhone 6 through a Celestron K10mm eyepiece with a moon filter, using a Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ-MD. Image was taken in burst mode with a 2-sec timer to avoid camera shake. Adjusted color and levels using the Photos app. This is the original:
  21. iPhone picture taken April 15th from central Illinois, USA. Not bad, all things considered. A few days later, I acquired a Celestron Solar Sustem Imager camera.
  22. Got a quick few shots of the rather psychedelic looking sunspot on show today, so enhanced the best one from my iPhone 7+ which came out pretty well methinks. Not a patch on other members offerings I know, but shows what can be done with a phone camera still.
  23. So i managed to get the 'scope out for an hour or so a little earlier on this evening just before things started getting cloudy here! I took all the photo's with my iPhone 6 Plus by holding up the camera to the EP... (some of the photo's didn't turn out that well as a result... Either way here are the two best shot's i took (These are my first EVER photo's taken through the 'scope) Above taken with 10mm EP Above taken with 25mm EP
  24. Just a few snaps I did with my IPhone 6 Plus held up to the EP to get some afocal shots. Certainly not anything earth shattering, but pleased that I got Jupiter (sadly no belts though) and its four moons. Taken through my Skywatcher Startravel 120 refractor.
  25. Just been having some nice views of Jupiter and the shadow transit currently going on. Took a few snaps with my iPhone which have come out quite well. Processed on the phone using PS Express.
