#3. "RE: Beginning Night Sky Questions"

Thanks, Gentlemen, for the tips.

Also, for others who might be reading, google searches came up with this article - very interesting, though obviously not Nikon related.

Of note, unlike the way I would have guessed, ISO 200 may not be the best point for any digital due to signal to noise ratios being best at higher ISOs (ISO800-3200 depending on camera, if I'm reading the stark labs scientist's article right).

Cheers,

Marc
