October 2014 Blood Moon Photo

This Incredible Blood Moon Eclipse Photo Was Taken With an iPhone

Last night's blood moon was beautiful alright. This morning, your feeds were full of photos of the rare total lunar eclipse, weren't they? But while many looked similar, this one in particular caught our attention. The details of the moon's surface are incredible and it was shot not on a professional-grade DSLR, but on an iPhone.

The trick to getting the shot? The photographer, Blake Steck of New Smyrna Beach, FL, put his phone right up to the telescope — a technique often referred to as digiscoping. Something to try when the next eclipse comes along.
