It was a moonless night so I decided to test out the low light capabilities of the D700. From what I read the D700/D3 has the lowest high ISO noise of any camera available and I was not disappointed in it's performance! I have even noticed lower noise at ISO 200 when really stretching the image such as doing HDR. Thank you Nikon!
This is a view of the Milky Way and Grand Teton over Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park. The exposure is 30 sec. at f2.8 and ISO 6400. The sky glow to the left (south) is from Jackson Hole and to the right is from Driggs, Idaho on the other side of the Tetons.
