Mobile Phone Moon again (and Jupiter)
Well, reader Cormac Scanlon took this image of the Moon through binoculars using a mobile phone. The major proble is that the moon is over exposed when Ii try it, and using various filtering materials didn't help.
Cormac has a Nokia n79 phone, and he was able to use the customised 'scene mode'; here are his settings:
I can do something similar on my phone, so I'm going to try as soon as possible. Thanks for the heads up Cormac!
Cormac also got a shot of Jupiter through his binoculars, this time setting sensitivity to high. He said that getting anything other than a semar was hard, I can believe that. Here's hoping Cormac sends us more astronomical images with his mobile phone.
