It really was one of those things I just thought about on the spot. So I was already viewing Saturn so I tried it and this picture was the first shot I ever took using this method with the iPhone 4 (I was really dumbfounded on how great the picture came out. Meaning from a phone)since this image I've taken more shots but can't come near as close as my first time doing it. Enjoy, cause I did... Thank y'all so much, really, for this really cool "project". I really enjoyed myself and it was just because I was sitting around waiting to view the next satellite and figured hey I wonder if I can take a pic. with my phone. Lord and behold it worked. This made it even more fun. Thanks
