Droid Cam Moon

Droid Cam Moon, originally uploaded by NDeRC2.

I captured this image with the camera on my Droid phone (with the help of an 8″ dobsonian telescope.) I share it in the blog mostly to restore my shattered confidence after a recent accidental post from the same phone. Technology really is wonderful. It just requires a bit more care than I’m often inclined to invest.

The number of options on the Droid’s camera is daunting. One of these days I’ll try them all out. I must admit that I miss the simplicity of the camera on my LG Dare, but only until I find out the advantages of the Droid’s whistles and bells.

My nephew Henry found the moon in my telescope in preparation for this image…way to go, Henry!
