    My First Moon Pic

    Last night was my first chance to get my brand spanking new telescope outside and aim it upward to the Moon..

    Then, armed only with my Motorola Krzr I took this..





    Not bad for a camera phone resting on the eyepeice!

    can't wait till next week's Full Lunar Eclipse.. (Wed 20th @ just after 6pm)

    That's an ace picture especially as you've achieved it on a mobile phone! I'm impressed!

    Oooh...I have long wanted to get a telescope for the heavens, finally decided a couple of weeks ago that I really should get round to getting one. Got any recommendations for a good quality one

    Thats really nice. The last Lunar eclipse I managed to get these, but not as clear as yours. Would love a telephoto lens to get that clarity!
