Urgent - Bulb mode D300
Oct 8, 2009

Please help! I am staying in the Cederberg Mountains in The Western Cape, South Africa and see the wonderful Southern Skies with excellent stars in abundance. So I set up my D300 on the tripod with remote shutter release and Tokina 12-24 lens and set it to Manual @ Bulb mode. Pressing the shutter release should open the shutter until I press the shutter release again at n seconds from the first press, but it does not do that. When I press the shutter release, it just opens and closes the shutter at an irrelevant duration. What am I doing wrong? I did repeat the exercise with my Nikon 18-70, but the result is the same... I am here for one more night and would like to get something of the stars, so please help!
