Phone scoping...

Never really tried it but it works well for some people with stunning results if you have the right equipment. I decided to play around and find a way of keeping my phone camera just the right distance away from the eyepiece of the scope. With a bit of trial and error I found that it was possible to get a better picture than I ever anticipated. Ok, this was a stationary subject but I was still surprised how clear the image was considering I have a cheapy scope and a Galaxy S4...

More practice needed to feel confident but I'll definitely look at trying it again as a back-up way of getting a record shot.
