Fantastic Mobile Phone Photos

The response to my post on mobile phone astrophotography has been amazing.

Take these fantastic images, they were taken by Luke Arnott from South Africa using his home made 6 inch Newtonian telescope and his Nokia N90 cell phone. He just held the cell phone camera up to the 25mm eye piece and look at these fantastic results.

You can clearly see the rings and ring gaps in this image, it is very clearly Saturn. The Lunar Image is pretty dang good too, lots of detail in the terminator region. DaveP must be envious.

The gauntlet is clear thrown down now. Lets see what we can do with our mobiles folks!
