Anybody know how to do this on a G9/G10 without having to press the button 400 times or use a laptop?

What I want to do is what he did and take a couple hundred 20 second exposures consecutively and merge them... I'm pretty sure a 30 minute exposure on that little sensor will be so noisy!

then it will look all jittery and out of register, and crappy like his do.

That's why I want to do it his way... I like the crazy affect it created.. I would just pick a better vantage point.

I know that CHDK can do it, but you're limited by how long the g9 battery lasts. What about the time-lapse function of the g9? I've never used it, but I'm guessing it does something similar.

it makes a movie out of the pictures,,, there might be a way to dissect them though.

I adapted the Aputure remote timer (Intervalometer) to work with my 5D, I don't see any reason why one should not work with a G10 http://www.aputure.com …_timer_remote_s​hutter.htm (external link) Good clear nights in Scotland are as rare as rocking horse poo. I've only ever managed one startrail shot http://www.airplane-pictures.net/image2797​9.html (external link) I wish you luck.
