Thank you @viridisstunning photographs comparible with my Canon D5 Mark 111. Are you a student of astronomy? Do you use the Xperia camera phone for pictures of our Solar System after dark and if so what degree of success do you have?

Re: Welcome to the O2 community! Introduce yourself here!

Not so much astrophotography with the phones tbh, I find the small sensors combined with lenses above f1.8 just don't cut it. I do though enjoy setting the metering to spot and at full zoom, get shots of the international space station as it passes, yeah they aren't exactly spectacular but you can make out the shape in 1/20 shots.
For astro I use my a6000 with either a Zeiss 135mm or an old converted Soligor 400mm. I find the APS-C pulls in far more light and helps with me learning various things about the cameras


the above Gold badge is not official and as such does not represent O2 community's officially sanctioned winners badges. They are blue, I made this gold myself, because I wanted to, after 4 years of writing the best reviews seen on these here forums, I decided to take that status, and adopt it into my own coloured badge.
To clarify. I changed the colour and added the years, O2 community admin, did not. Please don't be confused.

Thank you @viridis Orion is a favourite constellation of mine.Great picture. 

I must admit I own a telescope and use Skymap version 12 software. From our location at Lat 55 Long -4 it looks fantastic on a cold night in the Southern sky at Dec 35 at around 2200.

The vast distances we can see even with the naked eye is mind blowing!!! (EG Gemini)
