Gcam already uses stacking for its nightmode photos, so I suppose this is not a very complicated leap for them. 

 

Needless to say that the new Pixel probably won't have an EQ mount mode.

All kidding aside this is pretty cool as anything that promotes the hobby is a good thing.

"With astrophotography, it's sometimes necessary to hold the shutter of a camera open for as much as 20 seconds."
