Just wondering if any of you are into it? I'm a rookie, but want to start playing around with it. Not sure if I have the proper lense though, as I only have a 18-55 kit lense right now, but I have been reading that a wider angle lense is better, that can get your f stop down to 2.8..... but they say a kit lense will work. I'm going to give it a try this weekend.

Other things I've read for suggestions.... manual focus, set to infinity. Use the timer or shutter release cable. Set f-stop to 2.8 or as close as possible. ISO 1600-3200. 30" exposure.

Any other suggestions, or maybe you disagree with settings i have found?

Any pic examples from you guys? Would love to see some. I guess I'm hoping to capture the very last part of a sunset, with the stars already appearing.
