    There are no magic settings that people could share and which will bring you instant results without own efforts. Please read about the very basics of photography to understand the various possible settings and the impact. We also have a subforum Night Photography where you can read up the many existing threads to get additional pointers. An also note: hardly anybody gets great results without practicing, lousy results and other obstacles. Be prepared for a steep learning curve. Read up about tripods (in CS: ) and get a decent one, without this you can forget about taking pictures of starts.
