A poor man's method I just came up with that seems close enough to me would be to put your camera on the 30 second long shutter speed, and set your timer to the 10 second timer with 10 exposures. That way it would take 5 minutes of photos at a time, and you would just have to press the shutter button after that. Sure that'll still be quite a few presses over the course of an hour or more... but not as many as it would have been!

It seems to me leaving the shutter open for 30 seconds with the aperture wide open (per instructions HERE (external link)) would give you an over exposed photo. Perhaps I am misunderstanding something here. Also before taking the photo with the timer set to 10 exposers it counts down 10 seconds at the very beginning of each set but between each of the 10 photos is only about 1 second, so every set would not be equal.
I see in the instruction manual (page 53) it says: "the interval between the multiple shots may be prolonged depending on the image-recording quality and flash" but it does not say how to change the interval length. It would be nice if I could get the camera to wait say 10 seconds or maybe 30 seconds between shots.

Thank you for your help!

The programmer of that Startrails app says he simply sets his 10D to continuous shooting, and "locks the cable release", which means it's as if the shutter button is held down continuously. The camera will keep shooting, because it's in continuous mode. Since shutter speed is set to 30 seconds, it only takes one exposure every 30 seconds. It will do this as long as the remote is locked, so there's no need to touch the camera or release after the first shot, until you're done shooting.

Yeah, I msut've had a brain black-out. You could totally just lock your remote down after setting for the 30 second exposure. Geez!

Hey guys i am very to all of this dslr stuff, and i have a question, or more a request.

So i went out and took a few photos last night, of a few stars and whatnot, and they are ok, but i was wondering as i do not have photoshop, if anyone was able to take a photo of mine, and show me what can be done with it in photoshop.

Photoshop is really expensive, and i just need to be made sure that i am justified in my decision to get it.

Thanks alot.
