The camera has no real manual mode but at least you can use shutter priority to achieve longer expsure times than in Auto mode, where it is limited to 1/30s and faster. The pictures were taken in the "moon+" setting. Here the camera allows longer exposure times automatically. However, it does not boost ISO.
