    It's 5am, skies clear. I decided to give the Astrophotography feature of my Pixel 4a a try.
    The conditions aren't the best. I don't have a tripod, my house is on a corner of a 4-way with a street light catty-corner, city light pollution.
    I set the camera to Night Mode, the timer to 10 seconds, hit the button and set the phone on the hood of my car. Knowing it will take 4 minutes I went inside and watched a 5 minute video.
    Below is the result. Best viewed with screen turned up bright. Not to bad considering.

    Thanks. The Moon and Venus were gorgeous and would have been better if I had a tripod. That will be my next purchase.

    Nope. Looking at reviews for one.

    Looks like you took the picture using one, that's why. Is tried astrophotography mode a few times, the shots look great, but I don't have a Tripod for my phone.

    I can't recommend any tripod, I bought mine when I was still doing film photography (around the time the parents of many people posting here were dating - seriously ... late 50s, early 60s time frame). But the phone holder - I bought 2 of these on eBay, figuring that, for that price, I'll probably break at least 1. When they came and I tried one I realized - I'm not strong enough to break one. It works, it's stable, it's easy to use ... and it's almost as cheap as dirt. (Dirt, around here, is still free.)

    LOL!
    Your link brings up a thread about task killers. Useful I'm sure but I doubt in my case.
