    Default First photos ever!!



    Okay, I'm super excited so sorry if this doesn't go here. I'm using a crappy 2 inch vivatar scope I bought my son for Christmas. I have definitely got the bug! Using that and my smart phone with no mount I got these of the moon tonight!

    We are having issues uploading images after some forum updates which have not been corrected yet.
    If you have a dropbox account or other photo storage location you can link to it here.
    Some of the other members have discovered work around for posting images as well.

    You should only need one more post, if you still cannot post PM Bryan (Bladekeeper) I believe he has worked out how to do it.

    The images are showing, it seems to be out of focus.

    It's the best I could get with no mount and holding my phone to the eye piece. The view through the scope isn't the best either but I was still happy. $20 telescope lol. Was using a 5mm eyepiece.
