Due to the overwhelming, phone photo-shot views of the Moon, here is a resource to post YOUR works.

John

Kudos! A great idea to establish a place for phone shots. The iPhone was an entry way for me into astrophotography (alignment, focusing, and post-processing), lunar geography, and more complex methodologies.

Thank you, John.  All you folks with smart phones and the right hardware to attach the same to a scope are making me reconsider whether I should get into the act, as well.

OK, I'm in.

I haven't been able to get out much lately (weather, work, life, did I mention WEATHER) Having my quick cell phone pics gives me something to remind me what I'm missing. Not to mention a handy way to make sure I still remember what and where things are when I do get to set up.  I work with an unguided scope so my results can be hit or miss.  Sometimes I have good luck stacking and cropping out of a 15-20 second video, sometimes I get a better pic from a good old, high mag single frame shot.  

I'll start with a few of my favorite single frame shots from the last couple years.  I don't always note in my log what magnification I used but most are between 150x and 200x. And then usually cropped to highlight whatever feature I was after at the time.  

This will be a fun thread.  Thanks John.  I cant wait to see how it progresses.

This on is my current "place holder" for Rima Hadley.  I'm always trying to get a better shot and replace older ones often.

And one of my favorites.  For some reason Rima Hyginus has always caught my eye.  Even before I knew what it was it always jumped out at me.  May have been the first feature that I looked up info on because I was tired of writing "saw that thing on the Moon again tonight, really gotta find out what it is" in my log book.

Had pretty good conditions on this night,  The crater Triesnecker was showing off it's rilles South of Hygenus as well.

Nice thread. Should this be pinned to capture all phone images of the Moon?

Kudos to you John_Moore for creating this thread for all of us to share in!

 

As others have mentioned, should this thread be ‘pinned’ for easy access and reference?  It might even instigate some of us to consider AP and spend more $$$$$!

 

i attached another iPhone 8 Plus image taken about a month ago with C8-A + TV32P.

 

Clear, steady nights.

I'm right there with you.   I'm really more of a visual observer but the cell pics enhance my records/log book,  and are fun to show friends and co-workers why I'm so tired some days.

Oooo, I have one of those too.  This one was a stacked pic from a short video.  Was lucky enough to get "some" of the Marius dome field along with the namesake crater along with them.

Good ones Dave,

Boy, Rupes Recta is another one that just screams out "Hey, look at me" isn't it.

 

And then a little less conspicuous, but always nice to observe, Gutenberg jumps out at me in your 3rd image. Really everything in that Nectaris area is nicely framed in that shot.  Well done.

Ty

Thanks.

I labeled some of the prominent craters in this version.

Thanks for sharing Ty !  Next time I get the proper lighting angle,  I’ll try for the Marius ‘domes’ you captured so well!

Dave, nice capture of Theophilus, Cyrillus and Catharina being framed by Rupes Altai !  
 

Question, what cell phone type did you use to capture those images?

 

Clear, steady nights.

It's an iPhone 6s.  I'm not one to constantly upgrade to newer and more expensive mobile phones.  Telescopes used were a 6" f/8 Orion SkyQuest XT6 Dob from my driveway and the 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain at the Astronomical Society of Harrisburg's Naylor Observatory.

If you have Cell Phone/ Smart Phone images you would like to post in the Lunar Forum, you may post them here.

Read the Terms of Service on Image size limit before posting. Be sure to post only one of any image you post. So for example don't post an image here and further down on a different thread or at a  different Cloudy Nights forum.

 

Thank you.

I'm still learning Lunar nomenclature. Could someone fill me in on what all these features are called in this area of the moon?
