iPhone Astrophotography

I got my start in astrophotography with an image of Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury just after sunset taken in 2009 with an iPhone 3gs. Although the sensors in camera phones have very limited dynamic range, I've been amazed at what computational photography techniques can achieve with these small sensors. The following gallery shows some of my images taken with iPhones over the years:
