Here are some tips and tricks that will help smartphone users capture the moon using their device.
Downloading an app on an Android smartphone or iPhone instead of using the camera directly can significantly improve camera performance.
Capture the Moon against a structure, such as a bridge or a skyscraper, to add perspective and interest to the shot.
Another consideration for users while photographing the moon is to use a telephoto or zoom lens if available
Set you ISO or your camera sensitivity to 100, which would ensure that you are capturing the highest quality images
Users should set the file type to RAW in order for the phone to capture the largest image size on a smartphone
Capturing images in low light conditions takes time so it is recommended to use a tripod for stability
