Twilight Mode on the Sony a65

The twilight mode on the a65 has to be one of the most under-rated feature on this revolutionary feature-laden camera. Both photos shot hand-held, meter locked by first pointing it at the dark-brown hutch. 1/60 @ f4, ISO1600, using DT16-50f2.8.
Twilight Mode should be doable from RAW but first, this would require a tripod, bracketed exposures (unless one knows exactly what area to meter), and proficiency in Photoshop to extend the dynamic range to avoid clipped highlights and blocked shadows (unless desired).
Whereas in Twilight Mode, it's just a few clicks of the dial.
