Early Morning Digiscope Moon and Bullfinch

Still trying to get as many phases of this moon as I can


However the best use for my Digiscoping set up is still wildlife, what you think?

Digiscoping the Moon the morning after

Moon clear in the sky this morning, so worth a shot just to see the different features on view with a sun rise.


So the crater to the left is our favourite Grimaldi, then inside Mare Foecunditatis could be Langrenus?
Thats on the right at 4


Always worth a look over your shoulder

Digiscoping the Moon Rising

Missed the full moon due to clouds on the 5th January, so this is a 98% Moon, still fun though

One of the problems I have not yet worked out, is focus on a distant object. the iPhone wants to focus on the nearest object, still this provides a nice effect?
It looks strange , looks like a window shot, but that is the moon

This is the time-lapse of the moon rise from the horizon past a hedge, I think it joins the moon and the earth, no focus on the time-lapse function, will work on it.


If I focus on the moon as it moves then that focal length appears to stay fixed
