How to get best out of stars?
8 months ago

Hello
I tried to take photo of stars for first time. It was clear for me that street lights will overpower stars but I thought I would try anyway. And now I was wondering what else should I do in addition to going out of town?
Images are taken with Nikon D5200 + kit lens. I also tried some post processing, but I am sure You could also give hints how I could have done this better.
And for last I would like to know that if f1.4 lens have small DOF but stars are also infinately far, thenwould it get these sharp?
