Getting Mooned (and a making-of video that I promise is cheek-free)

I Got Mooned (and so am I!) uhhh..
(and a making of video that I promise is cheek-free)

Last night was an unusually clear April evening, the full moon was pretty great.

I shot a shaky-cam smartphone video of how this shot was gathered, using a telescope and a smartphone.

What was used to get this:
A Meade ETX that I found at a liquidation outlet for $200.00

A 25mm Orion Eyepiece

An iPhone 5

An Orion SteadyPIx Smartphone Adaptor

I filmed it with a Galaxy Note 2 (which did a piss-poor job)

The beverage for the evening:


I'll post some more complicated examples (like planets) and doing astrophotography with an actual camera later in the summer, when I get my Sony back from cleaning.
