    Hi Tim. Well, you made the very best of your hour. An excellent job on these lunar images using your cellphone. I like the contrast and surface details along the terminator in the first capture. You really brought out Craters Copernicus, Mee, and Longomontanus nicely. Thanks for sharing these with us Tim, and I hope that you can get more time out with your scope again soon.

    Nice afocal pics, Tim.

    I avoid taking pictures of the moon... they only "encourage" it to come out more often.
