Although quite tricky, this image was taken with a handheld iPhone 5S in our front yard. We have used this telescope every clear night since Christmas. It has exceeded our expectations. Our daughter just started astronomy this quarter in her elementary school. Her teacher and classmates were impressed today. Thank you Orion! You have opened the door to lifelong learning.
