In short You really need a tripod. After that, you will have to experiment yourself with exposition time and the lighting (diffuse) in the tent (the longer the exposition, the dimmest the light needs to be) It is easier and cheaper to experiment with light color instead of tent color. There are tons of references (blogs and videos) on how to do that on ...


shined a light to focus on foreground beforehand If you focused on the foreground then the most likely explanation is that the stars are blurry because they are out of focus, at f/4 the depth of field is not sufficient to contain both the foreground and the stars (which are effectively at "infinity" or as far away as you can get). I would recommend you ...


Exposure Very often when shooting in dark environments with a few very bright lights, such as cityscapes at night, the brightest lights tend to be grossly overexposed. The way digital sensors work regarding how color for each pixel is interpolated from the monochromatic luminance values the sensor outputs for each pixel filtered either for red, green, or ...


The first looks like the city lights are blown out a bit, so you get halos from the lights. You can try reducing the exposure in post, see if it gets sharper. The second looks like a focus issue or camera shake. The corners look like a combination of camera shake and mediocre lens. A few things to try: Turn stabilization off when on a tripod up your ...


Looks to be unfocused. Rather, looks like the camera has focused on the centre where the frame where ripples in the water surface look like that was the focus spot. (The entire second image looks unfocused but it looks sharper in the lower portion) Stabilizer should be OFF when shooting off a tripod. Also be sure that autofocus switch is in the off ...
