    Hello everyone!
    First of all, I don't know if I am allowed to post this here. If I am doing something wrong, I hope mods move this thread to the correct sector or delete it. It will be perfectly fine.
    I also apologize if I have some grammatical errors. My native language is Spanish and my English is not the best.

    Last month I took some photos with my telescope in my roof. Next year I will finish my degree in physics and I love astronomy / astrophysics. It's such a beautiful and humble experience that I cannot describe with words.

    I live in Argentina, we are not the wealthiest of countries and I had to save money from several years to afford to buy my first telescope and mount. I still don't have enough to buy some proper camera, I can't take photos that require long exposures because my cellphone camera can't do that. Nebula and galaxies are off my limits, but planets and the moon are not.

    I didn't know how to post the pictures with the 500kb limit so I uploaded them in imgur.

    I hope you like them! It made me very happy to be able to at least take pictures where I can see saturn's rings or moon's craters.

    Technical details for another astronomical nerd like me:
    Telescope: SkyWatcher Heritage 130/650
    Mount: Celestron Advanced VX
    Cellphone: moto g7 with an adapter to connect it to the ocular.
    Ocular: SkyWatcher UWA planetary 8mm with a 2x acromatic Barlow Lens

    Edit: you should be able to zoom in on the big moon photos.
