I was taking photos of the stars tonight and felt that the AF would not work in this case, so I set the lens to Manual focus.

When I tried focusing on either the moon or a distant star, I noticed that the point where the subject was in clear focus was when the focus was set to about 90% of the total movement of the lens. What I mean is that I could turn the manual focus to a point where the star was in focus and could then continue turning the focus further which resulted in the star going out of focus again. So at its maximum position, what would be in focus other than the furthest thing I can think of, a star?
