Astrophotography

Updated: 23 June 2017

I have been doing iPhone astrophotography since the beginning of time (which began after I got my first iPhone in 2007). Sometimes the results have been amazing. After seeing what the iPhone 5s with the iOS app "NightCap Pro" (now known as "NightCap Camera") could do, I decided to create this iPhone Astrophotography page to showcase some of my iPhone images. There are many other iPhone images on my other Photo album pages.
