Asbmr528 notes, you can take some pretty nice photos through the eyepiece with your smart phone. This is called afocal photography.  A smartphone frame can help make this easier.
Have you done afocal photography? Is there an ideal eyepiece for this, or will most any work?
I have done it but it is not really my "thing".  I am more of a visual guy.

I have been playing around with these:
