    My wife bought me a telescope for xmas, so I thought I'd try taking a pix of the moon through the telescope using the Droid's camera. This is the best of the three I took, just holding the phone up to the eyepiece. I need to get the tripod out next time and play with the camera settings to see if I can get a better looking shot.

    Actually came out pretty well considering your holding the camera to the eye piece.

    Nice pic.

    That's pretty cool. I bet with the tripod it'll be better.

    Now you just gotta figure out a way to attach the Droid to the telescope, so you can use google sky map for easy reference to find those hard to find stars. :)
