Here's an afocal photo of the large crater Copernicus and the Montes Carpatus (the Mountains of EiN) to its left that I took on the morning of January 5th using the Naylor Observatory's 17" classical Cassegrain and my iPhone.  The seeing was less than perfect and the waning gibbous Moon was low in the sky at the time that I took the photograph.

Last night I took some hand-held afocal iPhone photographs of the Lunar V, the Lunar X, the Lunar X3, and Aries' Hoofprint, after all of these clair-obscur features were past their prime, using the Naylor Observatory's 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain.

Here's a close-up of the post-Lunar X.  Unfortunately, the seeing was not very good at the time.

This is one of the hand-held afocal photographs of the Lunar X that I took on Monday night using the Naylor Observatory's 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain and my iPhone.

The following are some of the hand-held afocal iPhone photographs that I took on late Wednesday night/Thursday morning using a 6" Orion SkyQuest XT6 Dob, and either a 25mm Orion Plössl or a 25mm Orion Plössl with a 2x Orion Barlow lens.  The Lunar V and Lunar X were past their prime but were nevertheless still visible, along with Aries' Hoofprint and the Lunar X3.
