E.B. is right. There is no need to go to a higher ISO for night shots when you have a tripod. I don't know much about the camera you are using, but set it to full manual if you can and experiment with different apertures and shutter speeds. Actually, you could probably set the aperture to about f8.0 to give you good depth of field and then adjust your shutter speed accordingly. If it's too dark, use a slower shutter speed. If it's too bright, use a faster shutter speed. Depending on how much light is available, you could be anywhere from 1 to 15 seconds.

The cool thing about digital is that you can see what you get right then and make adjustments.
