Looking at the sky wouldn't work at all. If for example you're looking thru a scope at 100 power which would easily resolve the rings of Saturn and the clouds on Jupiter, and if the ship is moving up and down at only 1 ft. That means the planets are moving up and down at 100ft. No way you could watch a planet with that massive movement, even in a wide-field scope.
