    I live in Kamloops BC, Canada. There is a rather spectacular forest fire
    burning along a ridge line across the valley from my home. I can look
    directly across to it from a vantage point near my home. I would like some
    advice on settings to use to capture the scene at night.

    Camera: Contax RTS II
    Lens: Zeiss 3.5 70-210
    Zeiss Mutar I 2x
    Film: Kodak Gold 200 Print
    Scene: Night; Fire on ridgeline of mountain; equal altitude; very little
    foreground light pollution; some lights in valley bottom; distance est.8 km

    Thanks in advance
