2017: Full Beaver Moon

Cross-posted from LiveJournal

Get your minds out of the gutter; November’s full moon was time to set the beaver traps to ensure a good supply of pelts for the winter. This photo was taken on November 3, 2017

I captured this using my Celestron 130 and a Samsung Galaxy S5. There are obviously countless better photos of the moon out there, but without an eyepiece mount, holding still and adjusting focus is a challenge. I feel like I lucked out for a first attempt.

I need a cell phone mount for my telescope, but there don’t seem to be any available for a Google Pixel 3XL – the lens is off to the side and the volume buttons tend to get in the way.

The Old Wolf has spoken.
