    You clearly need a better camera/lens if you want to take pictures of the moon... a phone just doesn't cut it, doesn't matter how much "zoom" it advertises.

    That's the point, it's just a phone so to be able to shoot the moon without it just looking like a white dot is pretty amazing

    No it's not amazing.
    It still looks like a white dot, just a bigger, very blurry white dot.

    At least attach one of those telephoto accessories to your phone... that might give it a little chance to actually look like the moon.

    Don't need to look at sky when my monitor now shows two comets in the screen itself, permanently.

    First deep sky imaging session in like over 4 months (with the bushfires and now rain/storm in Australia the last few months clear nights are hard to come by); had a brief few hours of clear skies the last couple of nights.

    Roughly 3 hours total imaging time short in suburban Bortle 5 sky:

    The beauty of macro is that you don't need to leave the farm :)
    I have the Canon 100L 2.8, it's a lovely tool
