AllStarez, it is great to see these images, but the file size on most is so small to fit the guideline requirement that they actually lose a lot of their pizzaz!  I much prefer looking at images in personal galleries because the size limit is MUCH larger and the detail much better.  It's the main reason I tend not to post images here.  Not many NVers have an image gallery, but results are far better than here.   Image galleries are easy to create and to follow.  If you click on my name or my icon (the photo of NAN and Pelican) it takes you to my profile.  Scroll down on the left side and click on gallery.  You'll see a big difference.

Since January I have taken more than 400 images, although many of them were simply to test filters or hardware. 

 

Wow! I would say your testing was very productive.

Thank you Jeff.  I'd be preaching to the choir if I said dark skies make a huge difference in NV Phonetography.  M22 is such a great NV target.  It's what got me started taking phone photos in 2017.  I was looking at M22 with the Mod3C in the diagonal of my 140, and I wondered if I could get a picture of it.  So I held the iPhone 6+ over the ocular and snapped a photo using the iOS camera app.  Metadata tells me it was a 1/4s exp at ISO 500, set automatically by the phone camera on Aug 28, 2017 at 9:45 p.m. in Copperopolis, CA... which is where my green zone site is located.  Below is that unmodified 1/4 second photo.  Now I have almost 600 NV photos catalogued in my iPhoto library; I cull them periodically but I've saved this first NV photo.  I do enjoy and appreciate this very simple kind of astro photography.

Great photos! What equipment do you use to connect the ZWO camera to the NV eyepiece?

Hi guys, here are 2 pics with my OVNI-B and a 1 meter (40") telescope.

I used my smartphone with the OVNI smartphone holder. That was in prime use at 128x magnification

Only 2 sec exposure time for each.
M16 and M27 were stunning. Pics quality is low but all details you can see on both pics were visible through the eyepiece.

The telescope is from a French maker, Stellarzac brand.
