Starfield just with smartphone and tripod

Hey community!
This is just a random picture i took trying Astrophotography with a Smartphone.

I used a LG G6 with unknown focal length and f1.8. I took 20 sec pictures (with leads me to 20mm FL with the 1/400 rule) to avoid startrails. With ISO 800 I've been able to get some astonishing amount of stars into view though the framing is just random and the image could use way more sub-pictures. Next time (now i know it works) i will frame milky way or andromeda. I used no tracking and a regular tripod with smartphone adapter (15 bucks). Then i took 15 x 20sec test subs and stakked them in deep sky stakker. I also took some darks.

Point is: you are able to take some nice shots just with a Smartphone (needs raw modus and long time shutter ~20sec) and a tripod.

Next two weeks: rain and clouds... What a mess -.-

Greetings
Chris
