Homunculus Neb

So I was looking at the Homunculus the other night through my 20"
Dobsonian (untracked) and decided to try a shot with my cellphone. Just
held the phone up to the eyepiece.
Came out better than I expected.
410x plus whatever the phone added. It was showing 4x zoom on the screen

Oh bravo!

A tour-de-force would be to take a video of say 1000 frames, use lucky imaging to select the 10 or 20 best frames, and stack them.

Once again, bravo!
