5D Mark III intervalometer

In other news, the trick with the 5D Mark III was to set the intervalometer to start when exiting the menu. Starting on the shutter actions didn't work, but exiting the menu did. The only way to stop it is to power it off & remove the battery when the writing stops. Then power it on & dig through the menus to disable it before it starts shooting again. There is no way to see the viewfinder before starting the intervalometer. You have to start live view & finish composing before digging through the menus to start it.

The only bracketing available is the 7 step factory mode. It must be set to single shot mode to use the intervalometer. The intervalometer properly steps through each exposure.

None of the cameras can be aimed when they're shooting at full speed. Need to measure the amount of time it takes the sun to cross the frame on the wide & narrow lenses. Would be happy just to get a piece of Leo & the sun in frame.

Had just enough visible stars to get in a 5 frame stack at 1 second, ISO 400, F2.8. This is 4x more light than the highest exposure on The bracketing will go from this to 4 stops below his highest exposure. His highest exposure still wasn't a total whiteout.

The totality CU was originally written as 1/100, but changed it to 1/200 for the slight chance of getting a prominence. The 2 wide DSLR's are covering the same bracketing range.
