From where I live on the top of a hill I am lucky enough to get great sunrises, sunsets and then at the moment a stunning moon and stars. I really would like to be able to capture sunset, the moon and stars through to sunrise and luckily at this time of year it is only about 6 hours but I really donít fancy having to press the shutter every 2 minutes or whatever is required.
I have a 7D, remote control, good tripod but no clue how to do it or if it can be done with what I have.
Canon also makes a developer's software package available so people can write their own interface software. I'd be surprised if somebody didn't already write a time lapse software package that is distributed for free (I haven't searched for one, though, so I don't know for sure).
