“Smartscope” Setup with iPhone

 

Smartscope attached to my 12.5mm Coronado eyepiece

Rob Schorr, the maker of the “Smartscope” adaptor, generously donated one of his products to the Columbus Astronomical Society.  I borrowed it to take it for a spin.  It is a pretty nifty device.  It allowed me to easily attach my iPhone 5s to my PST.  I have been wanting to take some pictures in this way.  The only downside is the iPhone is not great for taking detail shots.  However, for a quick setup to take snapshots, the iPhone and the Smartscope adapter is a nice pair.  I plan to try it out in the future to take some shots of the planets and the moon.
