iPhone Lunar Craters Theophilus, Cyrillus, Catharina
Posted: 9 March 2022
Tuesday, 8 March 2022, I decided to improve on my iPhone 13 Pro Max LiDAR Cover. I had used a piece of brown cardboard for my prototype cover . It worked well, but I felt that a flat black cover would be better, especially when imaging bright objects like the Moon. I used my prototype cover as a template and cut a new cover using a piece of thin flat black cardboard.
I have updated my LiDAR Issue article.
