Great choice. I use my old Luna-Pro and the spot attachment. It has served
me well for many years. As far as the Capitol dome goes, be careful not to
overexpose. Meter for the lit dome if that is the most important thing in
the photograph. Do not get into the habit of bracketing like mad for images
like this. Learn to make a good exposure and this comes from keeping notes,
and taking care in your basic camera work.
