Focus using the LCD, use the focus magnification and look for a star bright enough that you can see it. Then turn the focus ring until the star is as small as possible - mission accomplished, you focused properly to infinity in next to no light.
Nice landscape! A little bit of magenta at every sides is pretty obvious, but you should be able to get rid of it in post.

Stopping down in next to no light? Nope, you can't do this or you'll either end up using ISO 6400 or higher or you're going to get star trails ...

Beautiful indeed. Hmm, that 10-18mm really gets me tempted...

Poki - I will give LCD a try next time.
gio - i guess that mean try to use hyperfocal focusing? If I change the focal length I probably need to refocus again right or is it depends on the lens?
I usually ended up shooting a lot of pic @ISO6400 just to check for framing and focusing...and once I got it, I tried not to disturb the focusing ring... next thing you know...I turned the wrong ring.
