When I went the first time, I mistakenly thought I could not bring a true camera with me, so instead I simply brought my iPhone 5 for the trip. I learned when I arrived that a camera would have been fine, but not a whole slew of gear (like tripods and additional lenses). Well, I made lemonade out of lemons that day and was still quite pleased with what my little phone delivered in terms of quality. But THIS time, I knew better! I lugged my Nikon D750 and the 18-300mm kit lens, along with my iPhone 7+, and was very glad I did. The Nikon was much better at handling the contrast and exposure range of a night shoot at the museum. I still did not have a tripod or monopod, but I did have high ISO's and a decent sensor. And overall, I was very pleased with the results. I hope you are, too.
