    Well, from the post-edit perspective it's actually a good idea to have two almost identical pics...
    One to extract the subject and a second layer to apply a blurr filter... ;D
    If there would be different focal lengths it could result in ghosting or blending errors... ;D

    I know.. but you don't need two lenses to have two identical images. Simply duplicate it in memory then run whatever algorithm that requires two identical images. I still hope there is some use of the second lens module, and it's not just there for aesthetical reasons (the phone looks amazing with that frosted glass and dual camera module in my opinion)

    Hey @panthimanshu .... Traditional startrail photography is done by clicking multiple pictures with long exposures (30-180 sec) and then stacking them up.
    With mobiles, even though the max shutter speed is limited, if the stars are good in number and you have moon light, 30 sec is sufficient enough to capture the stars.

    As @Bouncer71 said
    Capture multiple pictures in manual mode with lowest ISO and shutter speed of 30sec, with an interval of 10-15 sec between each picture (If you want a smooth trail, reduce the interval to may be 1-2 sec) and let this continue till 45-60min for getting a significant amount of star movement.
    After that group edit in a software to achieve the colors and exposure.
    Finally stack them using software like Photoshop or Stastax and you are done :)

    Wow... thanks to both you and @Bouncer71 for such detailed answer... I will do this when I will visit the Sariska Tiger Reserve. In Jaipur there is so much light pollution hardly few bright stars are visible but in Sariska sky is full of stars, clusters... I will bother you guys again if need more info [e]1f601[/e][e]1f601[/e]

    Hey.. Most welcome and you can bug us anytime for info.
    And yes I totally agree.. It's so tough to capture sky in cities. I have been meaning to capture Startrail from so long in Mumbai but never were the skies clear. This incident happened and very fortunately I had the tripod with me. As you are going planned, I hope you can capture more. Just make sure to check the moon phase on the days you are visiting.

    Not necessarily. You have to take two factors into consideration.
    1. The foreground of you Frame. - If you are going to use a foreground in the frame like I used the Bungalow, you would want to have some natural light for it to be lit. As you are capturing in forest, you need moon light for that. If not the foreground would be much darker than the startrail.
    2. How bright are the stars. In my case the stars weren't so bright, so the presence of moon on the opposite side of the frame helped in providing more light to capture the stars in the limited shutter speed of 30 Sec.

    There is no right or wrong in this for sure. I would suggest to visit during half moon where you have light source available to utilize for your advantage if required.
