I want shots of the night sky with my Nikon D5600. Even in bulb mode and on manuel, and on a tripod, I can’t get the shutter to open. I just get that annoying “subject is too dark” message! I set focus to infinity, but still no shot!


See the answer to the duplicate question in the comment above.

Basically, you cannot release, as the camera cannot acquire critical focus via autofocus. You have to switch the camera to manual focus as well.
