Nice Images, phone pics are awesome...Lunar live views with the phones they have now days are nothing short of spectacular, Phones are an easy way to tinker with AP with little commitment financial or otherwise, not to mention a good bit of fun too ?

My first astro-image was with a compact camera held up to the eyepiece, so I have nothing but respect for people who use the "low tech" approach and get reasonable results. In fact, IIRC, there was a whole SGL imaging challenge for images with just phones a while back.

      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.

      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.

      Thought I should at least enter this, although I generally stay away from competitions where I am not the only judge .
      This is a shot of Plato plus surroundings, taken with an iPhone 6 Plus handheld at the eyepiece.
      Scope: Tak FC100DC (another 50p in the swear box!)
      Eyepiece: 3 to 6 Nag Zoom at 3mm setting (I think!) giving x246.
      Mount: AZGTi on Gitzo tripod
      Taken using Procam 4 and cropped and processed using PS Express, all on the phone.
