Jupiter – Phone Camera

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.
