I must have a similar technique

I have some photos, originally taken with a digital camera pressed up against the eyepiece, which show the moon at some decidedly unusual angles !

That's a lesson in frustration - shoving a camera up against the eyepiece and trying to get photos. It can be done but only by the bloody minded !

Now my new dobsonian mount is just about ready I will have to try and fit the webcam and the No 11 keychain camera at an angle that makes sense of things .
