Wowsers.

You are a Star! This has been very confusing and sometimes it's so easy to completely miss the glaringly obvious.

I'm now able to set my shutter speed anywhere between 2048 secs & 1/100k secs and I can stop my aperture down to f16.

Thank you ever so much, I'm now going to investigate some of the other features so you can probably expect many more very dumb questions very soon!

Thanks also hnikesch

Thanks again, Glyn.

There is also an option to let you skip pushing the menu button to get into and out of the CHDK menu, you can just push the shortcut button. it's part of the user menu option

You are very welcomed Glyno,

When I began using CHDK (that was back in August 2010) I was completely lost about all the features available with CHDK but I managed to tamed the beast :p and now I am getting comfortable with it. There are no dumb questions. So anytime you feel like asking something, don't hesitate. I can't guarantee that i'll have all the answers but I will do my best and I see that there are a few people here that also seem to know quite a lot about that wonderful little hack and I am sure they will be able to help you.

There was one thing I meant to ask... could having the shutter open for extra-long exposures (for example, several minutes) cause damage to the sensor?

In short no. Taking photos of star trails and traffic lights at night will not damage the sensor. But be careful if doing the same with the sun filtering through the lens as this might cause damage.
