Recently, Samsung published a video that guides Galaxy S23 Ultra users on how to use Astrophoto and AstroHyperlapse features. The video is featured by professional landscape photographer Michael Shainblum and guides you to capture incredible night sky photos and star trail hyperlapse videos


In order to capture Astrophoto using the Galaxy S23 Ultra, you are going to want a sturdy place to position your camera during the long exposure. The photographer recommends using a tripod as well as keeping a headlamp so you can see in the dark.

Now, download the Samsung Expert RAW app through the Galaxy Store, it’s free. Once your device is on the tripod and aimed at the sky, open Expert RAW. From here you can do some test shots to see if you have the right composition.

Once you’ve got the right composition, head up to the settings. Make sure you’re saving your pictures in RAW and enable special photo options. This allows you to use the Astrophoto mode, which uses advanced AI segmentation and multi-frame processing to get the best results out of the night sky.

This mode even pinpoints the location of astral bodies like planets and constellations. For duration, choose 10 minutes for the best possible results but if you do not have time, 4 minutes still works great. You can use any mode, while the photographer used the wide lens and set focus to 0.9 to capture sharp stars.

  • Now, just tap the shutter button and check out how awesome these results are.
