I borrowed a friends Nikon D610 with 14mm wide angle lens to take some pictures of a house. After the job was done I started to wonder how this camera would perform in capturing the night sky so I carefully laid it on the floor with a 30 second timer set. This is the result from a single jpg frame. I didnt have any astro equipment with me but thought it a shame to waste the relatively dark night sky!
