     In general it depends upon you.   I've found 400 speed film to
be very good.  It is relatively fast with a small grain size.  In the
last few years several 800 speed films now rival the 400's
for grain size.  Fuji makes a very good film.

    The April 1998 issue of sky and terlescope had
a very good article on the new, fast films for astrophotography.
