mirror lock up on D7100

Post by Fyule903 » Fri Feb 21, 2014 10:43 pm

First of all I have to applaud you on this software, absolutely superb and as someone who is new to Astrophotography with a DSLR this could prove to be an invaluable tool. When I have been shooting long exposures I usually use a remote control ML3 on my Nikon D7100 and have the remote feature switched on with the mirror lock setting from the remote menu, allowing me to lock the mirror up with the first press of the remote wait for about 5 seconds for everything to settle and stop vibrating (camera is attached to the main telescope), then press the remote a second time to  start exposing and a third time to complete (Bulb mode). I see in your astro section you can program a series of long exposure shots  which is great, but is there a way to set it up allowing a (manually set) delay in the mirror locking up before the exposure is started to avoid any unwanted vibration from the mirror? This would make the software absolutely perfect for astro work.Great software, stumbled across it but will recommend it to anyone who will listen to me!cheersFraser

I have to post a screen shot of this because I think it looks so cool. So a mirror checkbox for each axis maybe. Anyone else have a opinion on this?

I too would love this feature. I also have young kids and would like to lock them out of movies rated above PG. Now that I'm using a Harmony remote, even my 3-year old knows which button to hit to "watch a movie"...scary...
