A Small Telescope and a Phone Camera — 3 Comments

  1. Such a timely article! My students and I just returned from the University of Arizona. They took some great pictures of Jupiter with two of its moons, Ganymede and Io through the Steward Observatory telescope (Thank you Father Gabor, Father Corbally, and Brother Guy!). All we had were iPhones and some of the pictures came out great!

  2. Binoculars are also a great idea. I don’t own a telescope but I own a nice pair of binoculars that are powerful enough to see the moons of Jupiter. They are easy to take along even on long trips. I’ve introduced many fellow travelers to the moons of Jupiter, including folks in Turkey, Israel, Egypt, and Sudan.
