Cellphone photo of Saturn

This photo was taken June 6, 2012 at 00:04 Eastern time with an Orion 8" Dobsonian and 10mm eyepiece. After reading Glenn Chaple's article about cellphone telescope photography I felt compelled to share some photos I've (painstakingly) managed to take.

One interesting note about this is that I'm getting these pictures from my front porch in Washington, DC. Given the light pollution in this city I think it's amazing how much can still be seen.
