I will be shooting at f/2.8 and even with a shallow DOF I would think that two miles would, for all practical purposes, be infinity. Any comments?

I don't see why not. I would consider a WA lens and shoot during a new moon. I've never tried this but I want to.

I'd set focus selector switch on the camera body to MF and set it there. Mount the camera to a tripod and use a remote release or the self timer.

(You might want to see this post in the Astrophotography Forum. )

Good luck and be sure to post results!
