Re:Controlling camera shutter with SkyWatcher SNAP port

Hi Kristopher,

I got 2 modded DSLRs, one is having a shutter release port and another one is without. So, that modified wireless shutter remote is for it.

Is SNAP port design same as a normal Camera wired timer remote? But when I look at one of the skywatchers manuals, the TIP and RING are for trigger and the SLEEVE is for SNAP. For a normal wired shutter release cable, the TIP is shutter and the RING is the focus plus the SLEEVE is common.

Regards,
Tom

I re-modified my wireless remote this morning. Now it works with the SNAP port.

Thanks a lot for the script!
