I have tried this a few times, and might again this weekend. There is not really anything camera specific.TripodRemote releasewide-ish angle lensFocus can be a bit tricky. Using f/4 to f/5.6 to get a reasonable DOF for error purposes, I would focus manually on the stars if auto-focus does not work.Set the camera in manual exposure mode for say, 20 second shutter speed and f/4. Adjust the ISO to get the exposure right.I would recommend turning off any long-exposure noise reduction.(When I get home I will check the settings of my previous outing.)---------+---------+---------+---------+Joseph KSeattle, WA, USAD700, D200, D70S, 24-70mm f/2.8, VR 70-200mm f/2.8 II, 50mm f/1.4 D,17-55mm f/2.8 DX, 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX
