I just thought I'd share this here to show the power of Samsung.
In a light polluted Bortle 6.5 sky, the S22 Ultra could pull out an amazing photo of Andromeda and it's close neighbor, M32. To think that a phone could be capable of such abilities is unbelieveable.
Here is the photo.

Using the Astro mode in Expert RAW at a 10 minute exposure, and Adobe Lightroom to clean it up, I was able to capture M31 and M32 at 10x zoom in incredible detail given the situation. 
Truly well done, Samsung.

I like that they don't artificially upscale from 10mp to 12mp when using astrophotography.

I mean, they are, but they cost way more to get the same result. The benefit though is the larger sensor will produce more detail.
