    Not the one where you have to press the button yourself every 30 seconds...:nono:

    It's called an intervalometer. Little electronic gizmo on a cord that plugs into the side of the Canon and runs the sequence.

    If you look down the bottom of my page in the OP, you will see a pic of the intervalometer.:hsd:

    I used to do it the old way, but got very tired very quickly:squint:

    i was imagining a person sitting there for hours with a stop watch in one hand and a shutter release in the other. :rofl: and thinking no way in hell would i want to do that for the hours you did.

    Thats exactly how astro pics were done in the `70's-80's except that along with the shutter release and timer you were usually twisted around at an angle that makes chiroprators smile looking through an eye piece trying to make manual guidance corrections in the dark while not bumping anything and blurring the image.

    Then after all that you developed the film and found out you shot a bunch of crap and started all over again the next clear night.


    hehe you have no idea how nice the review LCD is on digital cameras.

    And that's how I used to do it when I started, so I know and appreciate how easy I have it now with new tech toys available.

    I used to sit all night at the telescope, with my eye glued for hours to an illuminated reticule eyepiece, white dot on red cross, manual trip cable and stopwatch. BOOOORRRRRIIIINGGGGGG!!!!ZZZZZZZZZz

    I don't know how many times I bruised my brow and knocked the alignment from falling asleep.....glad those days are over.
