Yesterday was a beautiful full moon, and my first day trying out my new telescope. I was able to mount my Galaxy S4 phone and stack+process a 30 second video to produce my first picture (shown here!). I used Lynkeos and GIMP since I am on a Mac.
I have a few questions for the community. First, are there any other suitable astrophotography programs (preferably free) I could use? Secondly, I know the words "smart phone" and "astrophotography" don't exactly fit together. I would like to know what are some of the limitations of using a Galaxy S4 (13MP) camera with it's limited features (no shutter speed, etc). I love visual astronomy, and would like to see how much I can do to image the brighter DSOs, like the Orion Nebula. So, if anyone has any words of knowledge or advice, I am more than willing to hear it! Thank you, and clear skies.
