About this image

Last night I was helping a 10 year old girl, who is is mad keen on astronomy, and her family to use her new 130 mm Dobsonian. We all enjoyed fine views of the Moon and Jupiter (first view of the Galilean moons and belts on Jupiter for all of them!). We then took photos with the iPhone. Small fingers helped to press the screen to focus and to take the pic, whilst I held the phone as steady as I could (not easy!).

Great fun was had by all!
