Lloyd - there is no such thing really. Different conditions and targets demand different settings. Did you take a copy of base settings that I gave to Ned? If you're going to the public night at the domes tonight we can go though the basics if you like...

Personally
M-mode
RAW
ISO800
ICNR off
Daylight WB
Flash Off
AF off

the only time I adjust my ISO is when shooting the Moon

Hmmmm, personally for me.

Bulb-Mode
Raw
ISO 400, no more
ICNR on
AWB
5D's don't have flashes, so nothing here
AF, is automatically off on Bulb
TC-80N3 Remote, for long exposures.

Don't be sorry mate, we all do it different, I'm probably the only one of many that uses ICNR at all.
