I was doing some experimentation last night, and I ran into a few problems. Aside from the too present ambient light from trying this in town, I could not get my 55-200 AF-S VR to focus at 200mm. I tried to manually focus, but the shots came out blurry. I was using a remote, and was holding the shutter open for about a minute, trying to get some streaking stars. I took the filter off, as it was causing some issues with my moon shots. How do I focus on a sky full of stars?
