D7200 Astrophotography settings?
1

I would like to shoot some night sky with my new D7200 and 18-105mm kit lens.

Obviously, the 18-105mm is not ideal, due to its f3.5 at 18mm, however it has to do for the moment.

Photopills recommends a 12.8 seconds shutter based on my camera and my lens @18mm f3.5.

I also heard that it's best to first set the camera at AF-S single point. Target one of the stars, half press the shutter and then switch to manual focus, before taking photos.

Is the above indeed optimal? What in camera settings would be recommendable (in terms of ISO, NR ON or OFF etc.)?

Please note, I shoot raw only.

Thanks a million!

Nikon D7200
