camera settings

You should definitely play around with the aperture, exposure and sensitivity settings (and maybe even noise reduction too) and get a feel for what they do to the resulting photo.

Settings will depend on the lens used too. Smaller f number means you can have shorter exposures OR see fainter objects, but they'll let in more light pollution (unless you're lucky and live somewhere properly dark :-)

It's a digital camera, so take full advantage of that and go nuts taking lots of images with lots of different settings.
