Quick Winter Sky iPhone Photo
The iPhone can indeed do wide field night sky photos, like this one of the popular stretch of sky from Sirius to the Pleiades. The stars are slightly out of focus, which actually makes them look larger and easier to see - so it's not a bad effect. This photo was taken with NightCap Pro using long exposure mode. Doing a 1/2 second exposure helps reduce the background noise because I believe NightCap is averaging the pixels to clean it up a bit.
