Afocal Deep Sky Image's

At long last a decent clear night last night so I thought I'd try out some afocal shot's with a few deep sky target's. I do have a digital camera adapter but alas, my S4 Zoom doesn't seem to like it! Keep's shutting the camera down every time I try to use it! I am looking for another adapter but if the skies stay clear tonight I will try again.
I took all these handheld up to a 25 mm eyepiece and my 127 SLT Mak.
The Double Cluster I used ISO 1600, 5 sec exposure and Auto WB.
The Ring Nebula, ISO 3200, 8 sec exposure and Auto WB
The Andromeda Galaxy, ISO 400, 16 sec exposure, 1.6x Zoom and Auto WB
The Dumbell Nebula, ISO 1600, 10 sec exposure and Auto WB
And Lastly, Uranus, ISO 3200, 2 sec exposure and Auto WB.
I know they're not great but considering they're all handheld and with a mobile phone I'm pretty pleased. Now I'm going to try and see if I can get better result's with an adapter :).
