This camera does good for "night vision" shots (clean noise reduction).
PENTAX ist* DL kit lens 3008x2000 pixels (6M best Q)
Incandescent; locked to ISO 200; no-flash; 10 sec delay; tripod.
Spot focus; exposure calculation set to whole frame.
Firstthreepictures are 25% crop and sharpened 1-step with IrfanView.

This shot from across the street is pretty much how it looked to the human eye in terms of illumination of the historical marker on the lawn and the buildings and trees behind.

The several sprits are reflections from passing car headlights by the polarizing filter.

The fewer sprits are reflections from passing car headlights by the polarizing filter. I had simply turned the camera on the tripod to point at the building.

Here is a 100% crop of the previous picturewith a feature you can pick out. Notice in this crop that you can see several stars that were out that night.

Really like the second one - it is amazing what the camera will "see" during long exposures. I need to get out and try some of that, forgot how much fun it could be.
