Attached my LiDAR Cover on the iPhone 13 Pro Max and mounted it on the 30mm eyepiece using the Levenhuk adapter. Did some lunar imaging, afocal 81X. I then inadvertantly powered the telescope mount OFF. Oops! Powered it back ON and did a One Star Alignment. When that was finished I did some more afocal 81X lunar imaging using NightCap Camera (ISO 34, 1/1800sec, 1X lens).
Added the 2" 4X Powermate and did some afocal 325X lunar imaging using NightCap Camera (ISO 34, 1/120-1/500sec, 1X lens).
