First Peek at the Moon

This image is the best of about 50 I attempted to take by holding the lens of my iPhone 5S to a 25mm eyepiece on my new Celestron NexStar 8SE SCT. Shot was taken in North Kingstown, RI around 9:00pm on 07.22.2015 in clear skies.

My first experience with an SCT was nothing short of awesome. I ordered a few new eyepieces and will be taking it down to Charlestown, RI for better viewing conditions (far less light pollution) later this week!

Looking forward to developing this hobby a bit – would love any tips!
