Anything is possible. The 600 does focus well past infinity, so one does 
need to use care. I was kneeling in the wet snow (it didn't freeze here last 
night, which is very bizarre, as normal nighttime temps should be in the -20 
to -30 range) with the camera pointed almost straight up. I noted that there 
was a slow oscilation of the camera, so I left the shake reduction on, but i 
was definitely shooting through haze as well.
If we get a clear night tonight, I may repeat the picture and see if shake 
reduction is helping or hindering.
Thanks for the suggestions and for looking..
