This question already has an answer here:
I have a D7200 which I want to use at long distances in low light photography. The kit lens, a 18-140 does not have focus markers on it. Furthermore, the focus ring does not stop hard at any point.
Short of trial and error, or a fixture to assist, how do I focus at infinity for my night shots. Assume that there is insufficient ambient light for live view or viewfinder focus, so the answers to How can I find infinity focus on a kit lens with no markers? do not generally apply.
In my instance, my exposures are in minutes.
This question might apply to other unmarkled focus rings on similar kit lenses. And on other Nikon bodies.
