So I took my T3i with me to Northern Minnesota with aspirations to take some photos of the night skies and hope to capture maybe a hint of the Milky Way. Over the last few months I have been following treads and getting realllly excited for this trip. Get out of town and away from the city lights. I had bought a tripod, battery grip, extra batteries, filters (for day shooting not for this trip), and a wireless remote as well. Got all set up and did a few test shots in the camper and everything seemed to be working (using my 18-55 basic kit lense) and went outside and hit the remote button and it just wouldn't take the photo. I hear the AF working but I do not hear the shutter open. When I look at the screen all I see is the ExpSIM on the bottom right blink.
I guess I just wasn't ready to take MW or Sky Line photos.
Anyone know what might have caused this? Anyone know what might have prevented me from taking the photo with the generic equipment I have?
