Managed to get a few pics of the moon holding my phone up to the eyepiece and then *attempted* to edit them. I done the editing with a free app I found, Jus not sure if I've over done it. There didnt

Well done, you have shown what can be done with fairly basic equipment. I keep meaning to have a try with my point and shoot camera but realise this might start me on a slippery slope.

...but I will be upgrading at some point in the future, hopefully.... :)

...and this is where the slippery slope starts ;) 

On a serious note that really is a cracking effort. I've used much more equipment to get worse results, you should be really chuffed!

      When the sky is cooperative we have a lot of fun. But it never lasts long.

      Just Rutherfurd alone because with its internal relief I find it very interesting.

      Clear skies.

      This is going to seem ridiculous to some but that’s ok. I got my very first telescope just last week and the weather has been absolutely horrible so I’ve only been able to use it twice so far, for about 20 minutes each time.
      I have a simple Celestron TS 70 on an AZ-GTi mount with some better EP’s and a good 90 degree diagonal and a neutral density filter. Keep in mind, I know next to nothing so far about AP so this is INCREDIBLY crude. Taken with an iPhone with an 8mm EP (IIRC) with horrific cloud cover and about 5 seconds to capture it before it was unseen again.
      Forget the quality, the point is it gave me confidence to keep going with this hobby for the long term. Thanks for reading.
