Lumia Conversations Interviews Ms. Jen in ‘Out of this World’

The Moon, as shot through my telescope using my Nokia Lumia 1020

Microsoft’s Lumia Conversations interviewed me this last week about my love of mobile photography and my quest to take photos of the Moon, planets, and some stars with my camera phone in an article entitled ‘Out of this world: Meet Jenifer Hanen, astrophotographer‘.

This upcoming week, Lumia Conversations will publish my camera phone astrophotography tutorial, so that you, too, with every little gear and some gumption can go out and take photos of the luminaries with your mobile phone.

For folks who want a little data on how I shot the Moon photo above:
Telescope: Celestron Astromaster 130eq (who knows what year, my Dad bought it used)
Telescope eyepiece: Celestron 15mm
Nokia Lumia 1020’s Nokia Pro Camera app set to 200 ISO, 1/100th shutter speed, EV -1.0, WB to fluorescent, and focus set to infinity.

I took the photo about 30 minutes before sunset, as the moon would not be so luminous / glowing. It took about 12 test shots to get the camera settings and the angle of holding of the camera phone over the telescope’s eyepiece right. ;o)

The Attack of the Tiny Planets: Seal Beach Low Tide Edition

The Original Photo of Low Tide as seen from the Seal Beach Pier The Low Tide photo run through the Tiny Planets App for the First Time The Second Pass of the Tiny Planets Low Tide Photo through the Tiny Planets App

On Monday, while waiting for my Mom to be finished at the dentist, I walked along the Seal Beach Pier and took the above left photo of the low tide line. Yesterday I ran the photo through the Tiny Planets app on my phone to good effect, middle photo. And then this morning, in a fit of experimentation, I ran the first tiny planet through the Tiny Planets app again to get a second almost trigometric/cosine effect, photo on the right. Thus, twice through the Tiny Planets makes for good fun.
