I've been attempting to get some nice star trails with my D2x and 17-55. Alas I find it is nearly impossible to get the focus set correctly. Does anyone have any suggestions? I cannot trust the infinity symbol on any of my lenses as they do not line up properly when the camera is focused on infinity during daylight.
My E1 actually performs better under these circumstances. I be really frustrated!!
