Re: Focusing night shots?

Switch to manual focus (i menu, then the bottom right option, then select MF and hit the OK button to set it). When you twiddle the ring on the lens you should get a distance scale on the screen showing where the lens is focussed at (unfortunately without finer graduations than a flower symbol for near at one end and infinity at the other).

I also recommend playing with manual mode to get exposure dialled in - in auto the Z50 tends to overexpose night sky shots
