    I took this through my telescope with the Incredible's camera. One of the good things about the tiny cameras in phones is that they can see through the eyepiece of my telescope. Don't expect to try this and get it perfect the first time. The Saturn picture took about 30 tries and lots of fiddling with the settings to get just right.

    That's just flat out cool! I've been very impressed with the camera as well as the different settings that it has in its arsenal.

    Hey man, what type of a telescope did you use. I have four telescopes and tried getting pictures of saturn with a regular camera and they weren't as good as yours. I'll give the Dinc a try!

    Thanks people! If you want to try this for yourself, the Google Sky Map app may be helpful.

    Great pictures! I have an 8" LX200 that I might have to pull out and try this. Might I ask what kind of telescope you used?

    It's a dobsonian. I have a 10inch and 6inch. Great scopes but really not good for photography for lack of tracking, but Orion has just come out with new dobs that do have goto and tracking.

    Unfortunately, I work till midnight the next two nights. However, Jupiter rises at around 3am tonight so maybe I'll be able to wake up and grab a shot.

    Like Saturn, Jupiter does not simply appear as a disk in the sky. It has 4 orbiting moons: Io, that has the only known active volcanoes besides earth. Europa, where some scientists believe may lie a vast liquid water ocean below a thick ice sheet. Ganymede the largest moon in the solar system. And Callisto that also may have liquid water beneath an ice sheet.

    Cloud bands are also visible through my telescope. Hopefully ill be able to see them in an Incredible shot. It is tough to image both the cloud bands and the moons at the same time because Jupiter appears so much brighter than the moons.

    All 4 moons are visible through a telescope and I have taken pictures before with my previous phone's 3MP camera.

    This is what Jupiter looked like through that phone's camera(NOT taken with Incredible) hopefully I will be able to capture a picture to compare soon and post it for you:
    [​IMG]All four moons are visible in this picture. Taken on 2009-10-08 (hard to tell if it was August or October from the ambiguous date format but I think it was October.

    The Incredible can take some truly amazing point-and-shoot camera quality pictures. I took a series of photos of my dogs in my backyard and recently uploaded them onto Facebook. My friend asked me if I got a new camera. I just responded by saying that it was from my phone and he was shocked.
