When there is only a tiny number of photons arriving at the camera, there isn't much that the sensor and the camera electronics can do.

Any lightening of the image data is guesswork.

The only way to get more photons is to increase exposure, by using a larger aperture and/or a longer shutter time.

If you are hand-holding, a burst of shots at a shorter shutter time can substitute for one shot at a longer time. Affinity Photo is one program that's good at combining such shots. Some cameras, including most Sony models but not the most recent, can do this in camera and put out a JPG file.

That is exactly what I posted about in the other thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4472480#forum-post-63716989
