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, 12, and 14, held up by hand to TeleVue Delos, Nagler, and Plössl eyepieces, as well as a Baader Mark IV zoom eyepiece. These eyepieces were in turn attached to several apochromatic refractors: a TeleVue 85, Takahashi FC-100DC, Takahashi FC-100DZ, APM 140, and TEC 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 and EVScope 2, generally with exposure times of under 10 minutes and minimal cooldown.
