I've my Nikon 1 V2 only for some days now.
I bought it for my holiday in Kroatia, and I'm trying to catch the night sky which is amazing (absence of smog ).
However, the camera is driving me crazy. Whatever I try - creative program: night shot, creative program: manual (M), with illumination, without, the result is always that the camera fails to focus on the sky (surprise) and refuses(!!) to take a picture.
How can I force the camera to make a picture??
Other cameras adjust the focus to infinity if they can not focus and follow their masters voice. But the Nikon 1 seems to be pretty stubborn in this case.

Please advise
Thx Chilli
