    Cool. I never would have thought to do that.

    I assume that you did that so that you could more easily do a mobile upload?

    Dan, easily? ha! You mean [at all]. I was 250 miles from my computer and CF card readers :-( So yeah, I wanted to tweet something so it was either LCD shot 9which looks horrible) or this which is less horrible but bad nonetheless

    I think if I did not have a rubber eye-cup I could have gotten closer and more detail. It is used in Astrophotography a lot (eyepiece projection) but you need to be as close to the projection plane as possible and with my iPhone protective case and the rubber eye-cup, this is the best I could do. Oh, and Cary had to touch the screen to focus and adjust exposure lol.

    I'm sorry I gave the picture a "slight yellow cast" when I touched the screen, Manny
