not work for all lenses, some lenses cannot get sharp photo even u send to infinity
learn how to manual focus

tips for manual focus :

1) switch to lcd live view
2) live view digital zoom in the stars > adjust focus to get the sharpens image

1st  get a tripod
2nd thing u need to do is to go outside learn how to manual focus to get the sharpest star, u need to practice this before the actual shoot
3rd  download to the apps "skyview" , "starwalk" , "stellarium" and many more to learn how to locate the mw location

setting :
try 16mm f3.5 ISO2000, i can increase the iso if necessary, pls try and feel it

Some apps required you to update your location (gps) manually.
