    Summer of the supermoons

    iPhone Photo of Super Moon is Bigger Than Life


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     EricPStrauss shot this photo through the viewfinder of his neighbor's telescope. 'This is the first time I had ever tried that, and it worked out better than I would have ever imagined. The hardest part was to focus and frame the moon in the viewfinder correctly. The shadow on the top of the picture is not the moon's shadow, but instead from the way I framed the image within the viewfinder.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I took this, and a few dozen other, photos of the Super Moon with an iPhone 5 through a friend's telescope. It was initially tricky to get the focus right, but the photos turned out amazing.
