First astrophotography attempt with smartphone!

Recommended Posts

Hello all! I had my first go at photographing the moon last night, using an iPhone XR with my Celestron 180mm Maksutov on an Advanced VX mount. I am fairly pleased but it was much more difficult than I had anticipated! Any pointers would be appreciated!😀

Great pictures Greg, it's not as easy as people might think! You've got really good focus and exposure which are the two key things, nicely done!

Check out the Smartphone and Tablet imaging section for lots of hints and advice.

Thanks Stu! I eventually want to get a starter camera for my scope. What would you suggest?

I'm not the best to advise on that Greg, Smartphones are my limit! I'm sure if you post in the Getting Started With Imaging forum plenty of people will help you out.
