Is it possible? I have a Sony DSC-H5 and I'm trying to figure out if I can configure it to catch a picture of it. I don't have any idea what I'd need to tweak in the settings to do so. If it can do it, I know I need a tripod.

I think you need to just use a very slow shutter speed. I would try 8-16 seconds, (or more if you camera can do it). And yes, that means you'll need a tripod. Any shot you could get handheld would need to use a very High ISO and it wouldn't be nearly as nice as a picture you shot with a tripod.

Whoa. I'm messing with the settings now. I have no idea what I'm doing. :lol:

Woohoo! Got some (decent for the first time) pics. I'll try and post them on the appropriate board.
