Quote:Still bit confused why you would want software to control your camera, when you can eliminate the usage/need for a laptop in the field by just using a timer? 28$ or something from dealextreme.. works like a charm..
Still no way to do bulb exposures with a single USB cable on the Nikons?

Everyone has a different workflow and reasoning for doing the way it feels right for them. A laptop is not for everyone and an intervalometer is not for everyone either. To each there own I guess.

Quote:I'm currently working on BackyardNIK (BackyardEOS twin sister) but it's not ready yet, not for several months You can try this software in the meantime called TetherPro. http://www.oxfordeye.co.uk/tetherPro/tetherPro.aspxIt is not purpose-built for astronomy but it is very functional.Good luck.Guylain

Quote:LOL!!!SORRY!! Actually looking at adding a D7000 or D5200 to my arsenal as a backup crop body..But honestly, the D800's 36Mp's makes even cropping extremes still VERY large images packed with pixels..i.e. an APS-C crop from a D800 still yields 15Mp!Sorry, went OT! lolI will gladly offer up my services and D800 for testing! Back to the basics and beta tests after beta tests, just like last time, huh!? lolI cant wait!
Quote:That's great Guylain. That's something I'm really looking forward to! To answer Gerry's question regarding bulb exposures with a single USB cable. I have to use the special cable from shoestring to control the shutter and a separate USB cable to communicate with TetherPro.
