Tack sharp night/low-light photos?
6 months ago

Assuming that money and equipment is no object (within reasonable parameters - Hubble Space Telescope is out), has anyone had any success taking photos in very low light (e.g. candle-lit restaurant, night cityscape, forest in full moonlight, you get the idea...) that are tack-sharp or a very close approximation? Obviously, using artificial light is ruled out. Other than that, I am curious to know exactly how sharp you can make a night photograph given whatever equipment/technique one could reasonably obtain without introducing excessive noise (I am hesitant to specify an exact ISO but if you can see obvious noise in a 100% crop, I'd say that's good enough). Noise reduction software is fine as long as the images remain sharp. Examples would be wonderful!
