Lekker Shots Briv...

Sprokket...I've read up about Mirror Lock but never tried it...Not sure I will work out how either.

I do use a remote shutter or the 2second timer.

A tripod for Sure....Mine goes everywhere my Girls ,one of the 4 always get the lucky prize to carry it for me.

When you say set to infinity , you mean the F STop ?

Nice.

Focus on a far away object like a street light. (Or light up an object with your torch.)

Then switch the camera to Manual focus and keep it there for all your shots.

Yeah, esp. if you select a smallish F-stop (say > F8), then your depth-of-field gives lots of leaway. Focusing on a street light at say 50m should render anything further away also in focus.
