When I got home, night had fallen , no residual sunlight, and only Venus was shining in a very black sky. I shot this picture from my rear deck. The image is exactly as it came out of the camera, no processing and full frame. March 9, 2009, North Saanich, Vancouver Island. Fuji S100FS camera, lens set at 400mm. ISO 800. I tried several shots at ISO 400, 800 and 1600 and my eyes could see no difference between 400 and 800. 1600 seemed to become a bit noisy. All other settings at Auto.
