I just released Dave’s AstroTour which is a Windows app that controls your camera and astro mount to automatically shoot a selection of astronomy targets unattended overnight.
It uses digiCamContol for camera control which allows it to be used with a wide range of Canon, Nikon, Sony and other cameras. Integration with PHD2 provides autoguiding and it uses All Sky Plate Solver to provide accurate target centering. It can also import observing lists from Cartes du Ciel. Mount control is provided by ASCOM.
AstroTour uses plans which are a collection of targets which it shoots in sequence. Each target in a plan can have its own separate exposure time, ISO, aperture and total capture time.

It's free and you can get it here: http://starrydave.com/?page_id=794
