September 26, 2020 ALP InOMN Session

The sky this evening is very cloudy and we almost want to cancel the scheduled International Observe the Moon Night event via FB Live. But we persevere and waited till 8:20pm before the clouds started to open up. My son and I setup a Borg 76ED refractor mounted on a Celestron Nexstar mount with Vixen Lanthanum 20mm eyepiece afocally attached to a Huawei P20 Pro smartphone via Celestron NexYZ smartphone adapter. They were able to do a FB Live telecast from 8:30pm till 10:00pm before they ended the event. Image of the Waxing Gibbous Moon was also taken with this setup at the end of the session using a 1/500sec exposure at ISO 100.
