    Cool My first Moon and Jupiter shots ( kinda) !



    Hey guyz,

    I just joined the forum just a couple of days ago. Loving the vibe around here. I always wanted to do some AP with my camera. But do not have the mounts and stuff in place yet. But, out of curiosity I dared to take a few pictures with my phone.... lol (you heard it right). I know probably you guys have seen this kinda craziness before, but I just wanted to share the results with you good folks.

    The moon Pics came out kinda ok. But the Jupiter pics was washed out due to focus issue, (I guess you can see three of the moons if you zoom in). Please leave comments if you feel so. Good or bad... doesn't matter.

    Peace, Love and Justice for all !

    Those are nice first shots for a phone. I think the washed-out issue with Jupiter (and to a lesser extent the Moon) has less to do with focus and more to do with exposure (and steadiness.) If you have exposure settings on your phone, try to increase (shorten) the shutter speed and/or decrease the ISO.
