Some pinpoints, some starbursts, why?

Re: Some pinpoints, some starbursts, why?

The wisdom surfaced in this thread is that 2-3 sec timer (on the shutter release) IS NOT ENOUGH.  If the remote dies, let the camera timer count down from 10 sec.  Things are still wiggling at 2 seconds after the fat thumb hits the shutter.

I use Manual Focus quite exclusively.  But getting the stars/foreground as sharp as possible, in the dark, is something i'm still learning technique on.

I'm sure an Optical Viewfinder might help too...  But i'll just get a lazer i think.  Cheaper..
