I focused manually, using zoomed-in live view. I'd get better results if I just focused the lens as far as it can go?

That does not work on all lenses, some focus "beyond" infinity.

That was my concern. I'm new to this one, don't know if it does or not..

[edit]

I wasn't paying attention to cardinal directions, just facing away from the light pollution

Well "north" can be an interesting shot ... but many like "Milky-Way".

I plan to get plenty of those, once I get better at this, in a place with a decently dark sky. But there's no Internet (or even good cell coverage) there.

Four miles across, and the entire shore on the other side is conservation land, nearest town's lights are on the other side of a mountain. I can't get WISP because it's blocked by that mountain, but so's the light...
