    Hey guys-

    I'm showing off this new attachment for iPhone 4 that lets you attach your iPhone to any telescope to take great shots of the moon and stars. I'd like to hear what everyone thinks about it. Heres what it looks like:

    That is an amazing picture. I've always dreamed how it would be in space or on the moon... My 5 year old recently told me he would like to be an astronaut some day.... oh wait... do we still have a space program?:(

    I wonder if I can find my old telescope... :rolleyes:
    I've tried taking pics through a microscope, actually worked pretty well without any stand, though I had to zoom in pretty far, and the digital zoom isn't great on the iPhone. I think my DSLR would have worked better, but I can't take my DSLR to school...
    Anyways, your pics are awesome!!! I love the daytime one!

    These are some really nice pictures! :) I've heard camera+ takes some nice pictures but now I'm really convinced to get it.
