Noob questions about bright daytime and nighttime scenery shots

  1. I got a Panasonic FZ5 a few days ago. Right now I'm taking a few test
    shots, and doing the RTFM routine on the manual. There are modes for
    daytime and nighttime scenery shooting. I figure that I can achieve the
    same or better for daytime shots by...
    - selecting aperture priority mode
    - cranking the the aperture wide open (F2.8)
    - selecting ISO 80
    - letting the camera set the shutter speed
    - put on a polarizing filter

    Have I got the correct logic here? If I remove the filter, and use a
    tripod, that should handle nighttime scenery shooting as well? If my
    targets are more than 5 metres distant, can I simply focus at a distant
    object and get everything that isn't too close without having to worry
    about focus?
