Over the Labor Day weekend, I sojourned at a friend's cabin in Cascade, Idaho. I had big plans to do some long exposure photography of the night sky as there is NO light pollution and the moon was no where in sight.
Well, I blew it! I made a fundamental mistake. Cameras don't focus without light. DUH! And, manual focus doesn't work either cause ya can't see a darn thing at 1:30am.
NOTE TO SELF: Focus the shot before it gets dark, dummy!!
