Hi

I use my Sony A350 on a fixed tripod for some basic Astrophotography, I take say 10 Exposure of 30 seconds at ISO 800 and then stack them in software etc.

I currently use a remote commander lead which helps reduce any vibration. Im trying t find a way of programming say 10 shots of 30 secs 1 after the other - so basically some advanced remote control - if anyon has any thoughts Id love to hear them.

Regards

John B

Is the remote commander lead lockable in the pressed down position? I use a cheap ebay version to take multiple exposures. Set the body to continuous shooting. You just have to remember to stop it when you have enough.

Hello John, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!
Ah, exposure stacking and Astrophotography! Quite a challenge.
If you like to share some of your results and insights, have a look at the Technical and scientific photography section.

Sony α700, α850, and α900 provides tethered shooting. And you might be able to find software doing such task.
