Interesting times, looks like my observing will be confined to my very light polluted garden for the forseeable future.  This was something of an experiment, I'd heard that you can now capture stars with a hand held phone and indeed it is true.  It says it is a one second exposure, I was not holding phone that steady.  I can only think that it is grabbing a string of short exposures and aligning them and stacking them.
