Right: By Joni Babcock using a Sony "Cybershot."
Below Left: Telescope used was a TeleVue 76mm APO Refractor.  Camera was a DMK series Monochrome 1280x960 imaging onto a Lap Top Computer, shielded by a folding paper shield. The mount was a Takahashi Teegul Equatorial Mount Configured into a lighter weight Alt-azimuth since tracking is not possible on a moving ship.  The Carbon Fiber Tripod was collapsed to the lowest level for rigidity and stability.  Sorbo-thane Pads absorbed ship vibrations.  Carrying cases acted as a Computer Table and chair.
