    Thank you Mike and Sumitra for a very informative talk on the subject, I learned alot.

    For now I think I will stick to using my phone camera with the telescope,  I took this holding my old samsung galaxy note 4 up to my skyquest xt8i, it took a while to get it aligned and probably needs some post processing.  I am looking for a decent mount for it (samsung galaxy s7). Any advice or recommendations appreciated.

    Hello David,

    What a nice photo, lots of details on those craters!
    Really pleased you enjoyed the talk, it was a pleasure putting it all together! 🙂

    I can’t help you with the mount suggestion, but I’m sure someone else might be able to!
    See you soon!

    Very pleased that you found the session useful, David.

    I’ve not used a Samsung mount previously, as I have an iPhone… but a quick Google search has turned up this:


    which may fit the bill.

    There is another type of mount on Amazon, here:


    which is cheaper, but looks like it will do the job.

    Hope this helps.
