  1. For focusing on stars, do you find the low light focus is dead on or do you use manual focus. With my D500 I have always turned off autofocus and manually focused via live view. I've heard with the Z6 & Z7 that everytime the camera is turned on, it will automatically refocus the lens to infiniti. I'm not sure I like that for astrophotography once I get focused the way I want.

  2. Hudson, As a participant in this workshop it’s was overwhelming great to have Rick and you as leaders and to enjoy the experience with so many other wonderful individuals. Thanks for the image in your video, can’t wait for the next workshop.
