I used one of those inexpensive far east intervalometers a couple of weeks ago with my A55, and got just over 500 exposures before the battery died. At one every 15 seconds, got just over 2 hours of sunrise across a lake.

Unfortunately, since the camera was on A, you don't get the feel for the transition from dark to light. The camera did a great job of adjusting to the lack of light at 0500hrs, and you see the sunlight catching the tops of the trees then working down.

I did not get a chance to redo it - was going to lock in exposure in M mode, so that you go from black to morning.
