Has anyone used the intervolameter feature to do a timed star streak? I used to do this quite a bit with my F100 with a MC-30, but have yet to try with a D3.

I would like to set it up to take 2-3 hour long exposures and longer (8 hours) if possible. What settings would you recommend with the internal intervolameter of the D3?

Thanks for your help. C.

I've done it with the D300 and D200. I set it on the base ISO, take 20s exposures every 30 seconds. a 3 hour exposure would give you 360 images, where you can combine in a program like Star Trails and get this:
