I observed Jupiter, Saturn, and the waning gibbous Moon from my driveway using a 6” f/8 Orion SkyQuest XT6 Dob and an 8-24mm Baader Planetarium Hyperion Mark III zoom eyepiece (50 to 150x) on July 19th. It was quite warm and humid but the seeing was good. The transparency was another story, however.

 

I also took a number of hand-held afocal photos of the Moon with my iPhone. Lunar north is up in the processed images.

As I said, the photos were taken afocally using an iPhone (a 6s).  I did a bit of processing with Adobe Photoshop Elements 12.
