Hi guys! I watched a couple milky way photography tutorials and tried to shoot a photo with my Nikon d5100 & kit lens 18-55mm 3.5-5.6G but it turned out so bad. The settings were: M mode, 24mm, f4, shutter 20s, ISO 2000 without a light source, just the lights from the houses around my yard (not ideal location, but it's what I had). What do you think went wrong?

In 2015 when I went from IPhone photography (I know, the blissful days of ignorance before gear lust) to DSLR (first model used D5100 with a kit lense) I was amazed how much better one could shoot in low light (club, bar, unlighted garden...) conditions. At some point I then also discovered primes and now have a Nikon 85 1.8 (G) and a 135 2.8 (old manual). I also love being sufficiently far away in order for the person not being aware of being photographed, and thus having natural face...
A couple of weeks ago I put a post on here asking about lenses for the D5500 as I was thinking of "stepping up" from my compacts,, well its not the D5500 but a D5100 that I bought from a friend, cam + kit lens, spare battery, still in vgc for £100,, (couldn't turn it down) and this should get me started back into using / carrying a DLSR again. Now, and I know you all have your own views on this but,, "best settings" for the 5100, con / sat / sharpness etc,,,, any info would be gratefully...

Found one local decently cheap. I've been trying to read up on this lens, and haven't really found a definitive answer. I know the lens has USD - but does this also imply that it has a built in motor (like the AF-S lenses)? I have a D5100 and am trying to figure out if this lens would be MF only, or AF and MF. Thanks!
