I used a Nikon 20mm lens that has a f1.8. I was shooting in manual mode so I was able to make all my camera adjustments accordingly.
I also used live view which helps alot especially when finding the focus at infinity.( which at first was a learning curve). I used a Nikon D850 with Auto ISO. I am still new to this; hopefully this helps.


A trick I learned about the focus is to take a pen light and locate it about 50 feet away. Focus on the light and then turn off autofocus on your lens. I also tape down the focussing ring with gaffers tape after verification of focus via test shot. You are good for the rest of the night then as long as you are careful.

On another note, when replying to messages it helps to use the 'quote reply' so the person you are responding to can tell it is for them.

I really like your shot here. One of the things I try to do in my shots is to find a forground object that will add interest to the shot. I also try to 'cool down' the skies a bit by adding some blue and magenta in pp. Hope this has been of some help.

Well done. Photos like that make you realize how small we are in a massive universe.

Nikon 20mm f1.8 new N for full frame camera. It is proven to be a excellent lens for the night time for sure. Camera was the D850.
