Absurd convenience in various contexts. One of the reasons why I switched from QHY (I had a 462c) to ZWO ASI (i have any problem with QHY camera, but i prefer the other support).
The photos of the lunar surface are simple cell phone screens.
ZWO ASI provides a handy app for Android. There are also indirect solutions for IOS, but I have not yet had the opportunity to test them.
With the app you have full control of the camera, which is powered directly from the android device. Obviously the battery runs out quickly.
You can capture videos or images. To connect the camera's USB 3.0 cable to your mobile device, you just need any adapter or cable / adapter for your mobile phone. At the moment I am successfully testing a USB V2 cable from LIFE, USB socket to MICRO USB type B plug.
I find it very convenient for shooting on the fly without big pretensions, for publishing content online in association with other applications, operating comfortably close to the telescope for, for example, focusing and pointing operations, in the case of a distant workstation, etc ... really its uses can be the most varied.

Interesting, another option for EAA! I didn’t find any iPhone or iPad app for ZWO. May be you can elaborate on the work around.
