TOPIC: Nikon D7000 - Sony Nex6

Nikon D7000 - Sony Nex6 2 months 4 days ago #17303

I have tried my D7000 on Kstars/Ekos, The long exposure doesnot seem to work.
D7000: Mode M – 1/3200 – quickburst.
KStars : Exp 45s, count 3 and delay set at 30s.

I start the sequence, D7000 start 1st expo
Expo of 30s,
capture et delay = 1’32
expo 30s
capture et delay = 1’10
expo 30s
capture 45s

another test :
D7000 M - bulb - still quickburst
Kstars Exp 45, count 3 and delay 0s.

Le D7000 start 1st expo
expo 30s
Capture of 42s
Expo 30s
Capture 40s
Expo 30s
Capture 40s

So long exposure does not seem to work, timing does not seem to be consistent as capturing time varies

Then the Sony NEX6... is simply not supported/recognised by Kstars/Ekos/Indi.

Any clues and advices on how I could get long pose on D7000 or manage to get the Nex6 working?
Thanks,

Can you get any long exposure from the gphoto2 on the console? Logs for INDI GPhoto driver?

Jasem,
I will work on that, but realise I am a linux newbie...
I will try gphoto2 and get some form of logs.

using gphoto2, I managed to get D7000 config list and finally got a way to capture (click-click) with it.
So I got the D7000 in bulb mode, and used the following command:
gphoto2 --set-config=/main/capturesettings/shutterspeed=56 45 --capture-image
it took a 30s exposure.
operation then triggered an error -1 unspecified.

As for Indi gphoto driver log, not sure what you mean exactly or what to send you.

Thanks.

I am having the same problem. See if the attached file is enlightening.

I ran
env LANG=C gphoto2 --debug --debug-logfile=my-logfile.txt --set-config=/main/capturesettings/shutterspeed=56 45 --capture-image

I just found this statement on gphoto remote :

Nikon DSLR: We do not know how to do Bulb capture yet.

Looking into Backyard Nikon (Windows program), I see it requires a separate cable for shutter release see Shoestring Astronomy Shutter Controls

Is there hope for this sort of solution in libindi?
