hello again,

I am trying to do star trails with my D300 and when I program the interval timer, it doesnt behave properly. I set my camera to manual for 30 sec exposures at f/4. I set the interval timer to start now, then I set it for 1 second intervals between each shot, then i program it to take 100 exposures ( 100x1: 100). When I tell it to start, it begins taking photos and the top display has "interval" blinking. where the exposure time is usually displayed, it says 100, which is the number of exposures left Im assuming. But instead of going to 99 after the first photo has been taken, it goes to 67, then 34, then 1, then its over. Only 4 photos have been taken. Whats going on here? thanks!

you tell the camera to take a photo every "1 second" with an exposure of 30 seconds. That's the trick. You can not take a photo every "1 second" if the exposure is already longer than that.
