Moon gazing

Last night AB brought his telescope out to look at the moon.
It was pretty amazing. I don't think I have ever looked at the moon through a telescope before.
I held my iPhone to the lens to take these photos but it doesn't do the view justice.

Later in the evening I saw Saturn and one of its moons. The rings were really clear.

The great thing about having no street lights is the stars (and planets) are so clear and bright.


  1. oh my goodness, that's amazing!! such clear photos. We have been to the observatory here in Sydney and didn't see anything so clear....
