Hi can using these adapters you mention with a camera phone produce pic/vid of planets? My scope is a 120mm refractor.
I have taken a few moon pics with my phone but no luck with Saturn. I have been thinking about getting a planetary imager (neximage5) and originally came here to ask if anybody knows if I can live stream with this camera like a normal webcam , on ustream for instance or will it only stream to my comuter with the software?
The supplier is out of hours right now and I was thinking of putting order in before the morning. I’m intrigued by this set up now though although it looks a bit bulky with the two adapters.
Here is a photo of the moon at 200x just holding phone to scope ( I did take around 10-15 images but only a few where good enough)
