While at Devils Tower on my recent cross country trip, I was talking to another camper about photography. He showed me a beautiful photo of Devils Tower at night with the stars. I asked what he used to take the photo and just held out his iPhone. Well I know I could get a 10 second exposure but no way was that enough for the photos he took. He told me you can get a 30 second exposure on an iPhone only when using a stable platform like a tripod.

So here are a few of my attempts at long exposure shots with an iPhone.

Nice pics, and fun chasing photos of the night sky. But, once you start chasing them, it's a never ending hunt for the perfect shot. I occasionally will hunt aurora, and I am always surprised how well my Samsung Galaxy does, even with a hand supported shot. Best of luck on your hunt.

Can you do the slow exposure? I have the same phone. Moon pictures always bad.
