Waxing Crescent Moon
Details
Date Taken: 04/05/2014
Photographer: Carlos Ortega
Location: Bakersfield, CA
Other Telescope: Celestron CPC 1100
Other Mount: Orion SteadyPix Pro Universal Camera/Smartphone Mount1.25"
Camera: Orion Explorer II 7-21mm Zoom Telescope Eyepiece
Other Camera: iPhone 4s
Processing: Frames of one minute video processed with AviStack
Notes: This image taken at 400x shows details about 1 arcsecond in angular size. The Orion Explorer II 7-21mm zoom eyepiece performs perfectly well with any telescope and became my favorite eyepiece years ago. I was able to easily align the iPhone's camera with the optical system on my first try with the Orion SteadyPix Pro Universal Camera/Smartphone Mount, 1.25". A one minute video processed with AviStack produced the final image.
