D800E bizarre behavior

Jan 11, 2009
Sunnyvale, California
I was out shooting last weekend. Night shots, stars, moon, 25 second exposure, 1600 ISO. White balance set to Incandescent. Manual mode, lens set to 2.8 , manual focus at near infinity. 14-24 Nikon 2.8
Every other shot the 25" second exposure. In between the timer would go from 15 seconds to bulb directly skipping the 25 second exposure. Thus for every other exposure I had to count to 25 using bulb and could not use the 25 second setting. Really bizarre.
The next night 25 second setting worked just fine, even more bizarre.
Still on old firmware. Will try upgrading the firmware and see what happens. In the meanwhile of anyone has any opinions please advis. The camera is till under warranty.
