Lunar 1 - First Light

Due to the weather, the first and only objects I was able to view in any great detail were the moon and Jupiter again. However I wasn't disappointed at all! My new telescope outshone my neighbours one spectacularly, showing amazing detail and clarity.

I took a quick snap through the eyepiece with my phone, which became my first astro-photograph.

OTA: 120mm Achromatic Refractor
Camera: HTC Sensation 8mp
Mount: CG-4 mount
Exposure: Unknown
ISO: Auto

I was amazed at the detail and wondered how much better it would be using my DSLR attached to the prime focus. This image incidentally also became my phone wallpaper for a time.
