Astrophotography with an iPhone 4

I recently received a Magnilux adapter that mounts an iPhone on a telescope and have had fun seeing on what kinds of photos it can manage. So last night I took it out and mounted it up on my Celestron 6SE. And below are the results, at least when talking about the moon. Not bad. eh?

Tbe photo above was with a 25mm eyepiece, while the second was using a 15mm. I wanted to use my 35mm which would make it easier to capture the entire disc, but as it turns out I needed to order the larger bracket separately.
