How to Capture It Using Only Your Smartphone

Gadgets 360 previously provided some tips on how you can use your smartphone to capture a lunar eclipse. You don't need to have the latest Samsung Galaxy S21, iPhone 12, or other expensive brands to do this. 
However, you need to make sure that your handset has the pro camera feature. To get started, here are the things you need to do if you want to snap a photo of the upcoming Blood Moon lunar eclipse: 

  1. Go to an open space and carry a tripod. 
  2. Prepare your equipment by attaching your phone to the tripod. Make sure that it is on a stable surface and there is no tree to block your device's view. 
  3. After that, you need to activate your Pro camera mode to adjust the settings of your smartphone. The best setting to use is to set your ISO to around 800-1600. Use autofocus and adjust your shutter speed to around 15 to 30 seconds. 
  4. You can also adjust your aperture to allow more light to enter your lens. After that, just sit, watch, and wait until the 30 seconds are over.
