How do I shoot star-trails using the built in intervalometer in the new firmware? (A7iii)

Hey all,

I was looking into buying an external intervalometer to shoot star trails when I realized we got the feature built in with the new firmware. (I was previously looking at miops, pluto, neweer and some of the cheaper options)

Has anyone used this to shoot star trails? As I understand I would be limited by the max exposure time of 30 seconds? So i am going to be using a Zeiss 18mm f/2.8 lens this upcoming new moon weekend. Can I just use the built in intervalometer to shoot star trails?

Example - Can I set up the camera to take, say, 500 shots, 20 second exposures with 1 second between each shot, and ISO 1600 to create star trails?

Any tips, suggestions would be highly appreciated! Thanks!
