    It's like oneplus creating a fake night sky. Previously I used 7T and didn't this kind of photos.
    First 2 photos are taken in darker condition.

    Maybe those are just light coming from between the leaves.

    I can't believe this, but it can be true. I took this pic after blocking all the lens with a black object and turning lights off. IMG_20200704_221604.jpg

    Try taking one in a dark room with something black covering the camera lenses at night

    Thanks for the Tag @Batman360.. :)

    Hi @APhaniSankara... :)

    I can only speculate cause I never use NightScape in very dark conditions (don't even think it's made for that) and I don't know if they changed anything since the 7Pro..

    Based on that...
    I would say it's a combination of maybe a dirty lens, dim stray light reflected of the wall or ceiling, lot's of high ISO ( probably around ISO 20000 )and the Processing done by NightScape or light Lite Night mode when using AutoHDR...
    Software trying to show as much detail as possible by pulling up Shadows to infinity in post... plus maybe Exposure compensation by a stop or so..
    Which makes the grain look like Stars and the stray light like an milky way...

    Anyhows...
    As said NightScape and AutoHDR work best in environments with at least some light on the whole scene and an thoroughly cleaned Lens...

    Like here...

    Even here..

    It pulls up the shadows a bit too much imo... ;)

    Try other lighting situations and if you still think there's an issue, then there's nothing we ordinary members can do.
    In that case do report it via Community App -> Profile -> My Feedback...

    Cheers Bouncer71 :)

    PS.: I'm really interested in the ISO values of the photos... ;)

    Thank you...! :)

    I played in Lightroom a bit to make the effect a bit more obvious on your photo... ;)

    High ISO and post processing makes high ISO grain and an effect I didn't mention before, hot Pixels, more obvious...
    Probably also a bit more because of compression while you uploaded.. ;)

    If I press down the OP7PRO on an dark Surface using NightScape I get ISO 20000 at 1/3 sec. and this result after Lightroom...
    IMG_20200704_233451_001.jpg

    I got an experiment for you...

    Use Pro-Mode while pressing down on something dark, set ISO to 3200 and start with an shutter speed of 1 second, then 5, then 10 until you reach 30 seconds Exposure...

    The longer the exposure the more "Stars" you'll see.. ;)

    This can be done with any camera and the smaller the sensor is the more...
    Well guess. ;)

    Cheers
    Erm..
    This is ISO 3200 at 30 seconds... ;)

    Pps.: Best viewed on browser cause community app compresses the hell out of every photo... :D

    I tried that, and seems like I've got at my hand a shortcut to create astropics without going outside. 😅
