Re: Got a new NEX-5N, some astrophotography(Star trails and stars)

There are three methods that I've seen posted here and I have tried the first two and they work quite well.

1.  Open up ISO to max and then focus on any visable star in the LCD or EVF. After forcus is achieved recompose your shot to what ISO you want to shoot without touching focus and take the shot.

2.  Focus on a bright object like street lamp or house lights thats at least a half mile away.  You will be then focused to take star shots.

3.  If you turn on your camera while it is in manual mode and manual focus, it will automatically focus on infinity.
