I've tried it, and it was an exercise in futility. My homemade camera has an improvised sort of lens in the neighborhood of f/8 (half inch diameter aperture, four inch focal length). Several hours of exposure on a night with a bright full moon yielded nothing. Stopping down to pinhole would complicate things even further.
My paper was Ilford multigrade RC, but I'd be surprised if fiber would give you any better results.
