Re: stars: Canon Elph 300HS complaint

jpstanley, you're a lifesaver -- I recently noticed the quick progress on CHDK for the 300HS. I returned mine, but I may now be ready to buy it again, assuming I'll be able to control ISO, and hopefully run some interval scripts. Great job.

Nice work with the Orion shot (is that ISO 1600?). I appreciate that you're doing the same sort of simple astrophotography that I am! I'm glad I'm not the only one trying it with a pocket camera.

(Actually, I have been borrowing a Canon DSLR from work and I'll admit that I'm really enjoying that a lot. But I need a tiny camera to carry everywhere. Given that the 300hs is now down to $149, I think I'm sold -- I've been considering the S95/S100 for a year, but I'm not convinced it's worth it, and I guess I'd rather save for an eventual DSLR...)
