Try the Celestron XYZ:

some ideas (keeping in mind that I use a TeleVue lens, not a Brandon, simply as a matter of personal opinion:

—3 axes are a good idea, but take some fiddling around.

—the gearing needs to be tightened so that the phone will be steady, it is loose as shipped

—set the phone on the scope in such manner that it won’t be affected by gravity (I don’t have to use the Q counterweight, but there may be a configuration where the RA or DEC might slip

—place the adapter on the lens body prior to insertion on the Q and do some line of sight alignment
