    Switch to manual focus, set your lens to infinity, shoot away. Nothing more than that is needed.

    I must say,there are some various moment of the pictures that can't satisfy to see.This isn't exactly undesirable trails can be beautiful, and some of the people prefer them in their pictures.

    But i guess sometime its quite difficult to captured thhese scenes in your cam, as i have tried for few times but, unfortunately unable to take clear view of it. And then i need to delete those. Have tried with different settings but in vain.

    Great stuff thanks! I love sitting on my balcony at night with my Fujifilm S4200. I know its not one of the greatest cameras but I have taken some very nice photo's of the moon. The stars still evade me but at the end of march when I go to the farm I will be spending much time out in the bush!

    Too much light in the night? That's news. There's something wrong here or you are from other planet where night is sunny like day.
