Moon shots

We all have probably seen those awesome moon shots taken by Huawei P30 Pro. I have to say I am disapointed with my S20 Ultra's space zoom. You would think that with this you could capture at least something similar than with Huawei but no. All I get is blurry, smushy photos of some bright object. This is just sad. The camera focuses ok and the details are there but when I shoot every detail almost disappears and gets blurred. The only way I managed to get a somewhat decent shot was to use the screen capture app and record the moment the camera focuses into the moon. Then later I just paused the video and took a screen picture. So the technology is there. Why is it not possible? Attached my poor moon picture to show what I mean by blurred and out of focus moon details.

Same problem here. Picture is better before I take the actual photo. It comes down to shutter speed, guess what we can't access that in normal photo mode. Vice versa, pro mode has no 100x zoom. Its messed up for a "photography changing phone"

The speed on the Exynos makes little to no difference. Still not what was promised.Burst image !Burst image !

This I got by recording screen, pausing and taking a screenshot. 20200408_011416-01.jpeg
