Mobile phone snaps and sketching

Recommended Posts

At the risk of getting laughed at by the astrophotography peeps I thought I would share my observing routine. 

I have stayed away from astrophotography as seeing in the eyepiece is my joy but that said having a reference of what I have seen is nice.  I will 100% be sketching in spring and summer but winter in the UK and soggy paper ain't my kinda fun. 

So I have being using my phone to get rough snaps which I enjoy but others will hate ( which is fine )  I guess through all the technical and amazing equipment out there just having fun and enjoying your hobby your own way should always be the goal.  So here are some snaps ! 

P.s sorry @Stu if this is in the wrong place, I didn't know where to post it 😅 

Also, thanks to people on here for the recommendations on eyepieces and tips on observing,  using DeLites and a chair and taking time at the eyepiece has changed my observing so much!

Nice shots @Mart29. I’ve moved this to Imaging - Smartphones / Tablets but left a link in the original location.

I’m a big fan of smartphone imaging, it allows me to concentrate on observing but keep a record of what I’ve seen. Great for sharing too.

Which phone do you have? 

Thanks

Thanks @Stu I have the Samsung fold. Which is probably one of the best phones out there but the camera isn't that good , my Samsung Notes camera was so much better! But regardless  , these shots do me 🙃 i just have to go into Pro mode and turn the ISO to 50 and the white balance to 2700 or 3200  to get detail.  

Exactly that  , can observe constantly and just take a quick snap and back on it! 

Mars I filmed on the video pro mode and then kept pausing the vid until I found a decent image.
