My first attempt at astrophotography using a telescope! I’ve included the negative as it’s easier to see any detail.
The camera used was just my Samsung Galaxy S2 phone’s camera pointed through the eyepiece. Very awkward to get anything with it.
You can see Jupiter and two of its moons, most likely Ganymede and Callisto. Another two moons could be seen through the telescope, probably Io and Europa, but the phone camera failed to capture them.

A half moon over Dublin on the 26th of July 2012.
My camera only allows 12x optical zoom, not quite enough to get as close as I’d like, so the above is a cropped version (3648×2736->1280×960).
More entertaining than your average Tuesday lunchtime.
