    I loled.


    With respect to OP, there are many "artistic" shots with extended exposures. Unless you have a strong light source (sun, focused light aka lasers) shining onto your sensor or are pointing towards one... should be okay.

    When you do it against direct sun, mostly it will spoil..

    For night shots, when you use long exposure, mostly the settings will be F12 or smaller.
    So it's quite safe as not a lot of light will be captured.

    not unless you are doing stupid things.

    i have taken countless 1-8 minute shots with my k20d, it is not a d90, but i don't see how that would make the camera spoil easily, unless you do something silly, as mentioned by others, like 5 minute exposure with the sun blazing high in the sky.

    On my D200, the body would heat up really bad and with the notoriously bad battery life, I guess my battery will spoil cos have to charge more often?
