How to shoot in astrophotography mode on GCam 7.0 onwards?

Once the Astrophotography mode is enabled, there are certain conditions to be met to capture photos in that mode.

Following conditions must be met to capture in Astrophotography mode (known as cuttlefish in Google Camera ports like this):
– It can be enabled on Night Sight mode (only)
– The phone must be kept static (use a tripod or keep the phone somewhere to keep it static)
– There must be low light condition
– It may take few seconds for this mode to come up when the above conditions are met

See the below screenshots to get an idea how to know if it is shooting in Astrophotography mode in GCam 7.0?

When the display shows something like “Astrophotography on” or “Phone is steady” or “Capturing cuttlefish” while capturing photo in Night Sight mode, then most likely it is shooting in astrophotography mode otherwise not.
When I kept the phone static in front of a good light source, the Astrophotography mode did not turn on no matter how longer I waited.
So, make sure it is a low light environment.

      There was some code missing hence the issue arose.

    When i install Gcam 8.0 (MGC_8.0.018_A9_V0f.apk) on my Redmi Note 8,it says APP NOT INSTALLED. Please fix this issue, I want to use gcam 8.0

    • Usually this issue happens if you have already some version of GCam installed on the phone.
      If so, please uninstall the other version to install this one.

        When my device was in android 9 it use to work decent but after android 10 it is very lagging every mods 8.0, 7.4, 7.3,7.0 lags
        Night mode is a best thing about these mods but it crashes often now adays
        Hdr second also lags in every mods except 7.0. can’t we get official mods for redmin8 with all camera access and with no lags?
