I've just started astophotography. I've been using my Canon 250D. I've been doing this for about 6 months, and haven't changed anything on the setting since I've started. Just recently, the camera has started showing busy, which causes problems with keeping the time sequence. I'm using a velometer that I can program the delay, shot time, pause interval and the number of shots. Up until now, I've had any issues. In the last week, I'm getting this busy mesage. To compensate, I've timed it and have adusted by pause interval to match the delay; however, this issue is driving me bonkers since I can't figure out why it has started doing this all of sudden. Any suggestions on how to address this issue?

Thank you everyone for the time you have taken to help. Apparently, the noise reduction was on auto, so Peter and kvbarkley were spot on. Once I turned it off and did a series of simulations, I had no "Busy" displays. Somehow, I must've changed it and just didn't recall I did it, and have been fortunate that it hadn't cause an issue. I did bump up the ISO settings that I was using, and increased the exposure time, thi might have triggered the noise reduction since it was in auto mode. Just a primitive guess. Problem has been resolve nevertheless. Thank you again everyone.
