Intervalometer triggered by remote contol
« on: January 18, 2020, 06:57:47 PM »
I wanted to take some astronomical shoots of constellation Orion using Bulb and Intervalometer. My cam is a EOS 6D with latest ML-firmware (self-compiled). I switched the Camera to Bulb-Mode for some 50s-pics. I told the Intervalometer to take a picture every 60s. That should be enough für the 50 second bulb pictures. Than I told the intervalometer to be triggered by a picture.
I started the sesson with my remote control Canon RC6. But the only sucess, I had, was a never ending bulb-picture.
Isn´t it possible to trigger the intervalometer using a wireless remote control?

By the way for those, who are interested in: Maybe qou know, I paint the constellations in another way than usual ( https://sternenkarten.com/2019/12/27/kstars-clines/ ). My constellation lines are now intergrated in kstars.
