    Hello everyone,

    My name is David Liles. My fiancé purchased a Nikon 1 V1 and we are getting the hang of it. I've always been a DSLR person my self not sure I like the heavily menu driven system. We do Nature photography mostly but I'm into Astrophotography and need to find a way to operate the camera without the lens attached. I have an adaptor that attaches to the camera and allows the camera to fit my telescope focuser. Any tips on getting the camera to operate in pure manual mode without feedback from a lens?

    Cheers
    David

    Welcome aboard David. I'm sure one of our wee Nikon enthusiasts will jump in to help soon, although the little Nikon's are a little underrepresented here.

    David, I hope you'll give us some photos via attachments, using the gallery, etc. I've been remiss in not keeping my eyes on the Welcomes and Introductions, so am extremely late in saying "Welcome"!:drinks:
