comment How to capture details of the moon?
@OlinLathrop The OP was asking "How I can improve my picture" I never said the exposure time depends on the focal length (except for the built-in meter if not in spot mode) but my post was more about the lens quality and the sharpness of the result.

comment Is there a 3rd-party wireless slave for Nikon SU-4 triggering?
thanks for your answer, in fact the wireless radio (whole set) looks interesting but it would not be compatible with the two SB-R200 I have already. I was just looking for a possible alternative. Anyway the SU-4 is not so high price than the su-800.

comment Can anyone tell me what camera/lens is in this picture of a Nikon F with 50mm lens?
The title looks strange as it already answers the question (or part of)

comment Are infrared DSLR conversion companies safe? What about DIY infrared conversion?
You went with a 720nm, I think that's the best choice because I think you can still add a filter on your lense (like 900nm or 1000nm) to reduce the IR wavelength if needed, no?

comment How to tell whether a lens has an autofocus motor or not?
I totally agree with the answer and I would recommend even to take a lense with built-in motor (AF-S) because they are quieter and you can benefits from the manual focus overriding. The body AF motor is just there for compatibility with previous generation lenses (AF & AF-D) which is a must have for the more advanced bodies (like serie 7xxx)
