  1. Neat. It is hard to focus on stars. I decided just to set the lens focus scale at infinity, and not use the widest aperture. Stop lens down two or three stops. Keep ISO low.

  2. Oh my heavens (tee-hee), what a magical photo, Ruth, TRULY! WONDERFUL TO GO TO BED WITH THIS IMAGE IN MY MIND!!! xoxoxox e
