Astrophotography can be a tremendously inaccessible and expensive hobby. I hope these photos show what's possible, under light-polluted urban skies, using telescopes and mounts that take approximately five minutes to setup, acclimate, and use well.
Solar System pictures using fine refractors
The following pictures were taken with an iPhone 8 and 12, held up by hand to TeleVue Delos, Nagler, and Plössl eyepieces that were in turn attached to several fine apochromatic refractors: a TeleVue 85, Takahashi FC-100DC, Takahashi FC-100DZ, and APM 140. All telescopes were held by manual altazimuth mounts with no electronics and no tracking.
Deep space pictures using an EVScope
The following pictures were taken using a well-collimated EVScope, with exposure times of under 10 minutes and minimal cooldown.
