lunar-eclipse

Were you one of the many who stayed awake last night to check out the lunar eclipse as it occurred in the early morning hours? Many of us wish we could capture the amazing event on camera, and it appears as though one person was going to go to any extreme to capture a shot. With the use of his Motorola Droid X and a telescope @freshgeardude was able to capture the miraculous shot that is shown above. It's not quite as spectacular as this other moon shot we've seen, but it's still a great example of exactly just what Droid Does! [via @freshgeardude]

Sweet pic! Go DX!

I don't want to knock the pic or the pic-taker, because this is an okay pic for a night-shot off a cell phone...but let's be honest, the camera on the DX is borderline terrible.

El Jefe says:

You really think so? I don't at all. I have had nothing but outstanding pictures taken with my DX.

arundc says:

Same. Took some great shots in Hawaii as a backup camera. The video is great too.

Dx camera horrible? You must be totally clueless. You're obviously just a hater.

Will this post work? Something should be done about that spam filter...I just lost a whole post.

Discovered last night that my wifes pics from her DX are horrible compared to my DInc.

Clemsonpablo says:

Lol, as a DX owner, im not a hater. My iphone took better pictures. My non smartphone before that nearly took better pictures. Im a pretty decent amatuer photographer, so yes, terrible focusing and grain even on pictures taken in broad daylight do piss me off.

Put the koolaid down man. Wake up

My DX takes grainy pictures one minute and then perfectly sharp and in focus the next. I'd say that is borderline horrible. This is my third replacement and all have acted the same. And don't get me started on the barcode scanners on this thing.

I think the HTC evo camera is the best....

Lets be honest,it's a cameraphone not DSLR. So that's a pretty good pic. BTW,how does one connect their telescope with their cameraphone?

That's a good picture, have any of you tried to hold a camera to a telescope, it's darn hard. To get such a great picture with something that was not designed as a camera is a feat.

Droid A FTW!

I have a dx and incredible. Andi have to say, the flash is amazing.I can use it as a strobe light with this app called tesla led. The ac team should review it its so cool

I'm the one who took the picture.

it was pretty difficult to find the best exposure and ISO to get the best picture, but i think this was set at 200 iso and 3 exposure.

To take the pic through the telescope was probably the hardest part, I used the hole that you use to view with your eye, it was pretty small but managed to get the picture.

I know the light sensor on the camera on the DX for night isnt the greatest, but i managed to pull this off. day light pictures are amazing good. I've taken pictures at rocky mountain national park with the DX during daylight and they were simply stunning.

thanks for all the positive comments.

haters gonna hate :P

  本报讯  怀上了五胞胎,不仅没有喜悦,还愁坏了20岁的小利(化名),原来她是打了促排卵的针才一次怀上这么多。昨天下午,小利在老公的陪同下,在省立医院实施了减胎手术。   昨天下午4时许,记者在省立医院生殖中心见到了小利21岁的老公。他告诉记者, 他老家在阜阳市颍州区,今年春节期间结的婚,后来一起在温州打工。在快一年的时间里,老婆一直没有怀孕,当时怀疑是不是有问题。于是,就在温州一家医院,对小利进行了检查。当时,医生的诊断是不能排卵,为此,就在医院打了促排卵的针。“没想到这一下子竟然怀上了5个,哪养得起呢。”小利的老公告诉记者,现在老婆已经怀孕2个多月了,必须要尽快减胎。昨天下午,经过2个多小时的手术,减胎成功,留下了2个胚胎。   负责手术的省立医院生殖中心副主任医师栾红兵告诉记者,当时小利“宫内五活胎”胚胎已经发育成形,“不减胎,自己生下来的概率非常低,基本上到后期会造成全部流产。”栾红兵告诉记者,之前医院也接诊过一位怀了3胞胎不愿意减胎的孕妇,结果到五六个月的时候流产,一个都没保住。   “现在很多人自己乱吃促排卵的药,这非常危险。”栾红兵告诉记者,cheap ralph lauren big pony polo,如果被确诊为排卵障碍造成的不孕,应该是在医生的监护和指导下用药,而且减胎也必须是在早期胚芽状态下进行。   陈孝谋 本报记者 夏丽霞
