How to get infinity focus using kit lens (or lens without focusing meter)

A quick tip for night scape hunters out there who are using the original kit lens that came with the body. Since the lens does not have a distance focusing marker on it, it is a bit of hit and run trying to set the lens to infinity focus. The trick is to use your camera's auto focus on something really far away then switch it to manual focus without moving the focusing ring after that.

The best way is to do it way before you go on site and make a mark across the ring and the body so that the next time you are on site, all you have to do is to align the marks and you are done. Happy hunting.
