No problem there, but I suggest you try using stacking techniques instead. It's better in term of noise.

Thank you for your help.

 

I was going to take 12 images, each 4 minutes long @ f/4 w/100 iso using my timer.  Then I will stack these RAW images

converted to PSD files using Photoshop's Statistics script.

 

But I also wanted to try leaving the camera on for ~ 1 hr. using f/4 w/iso 100.  I will use my 24-70 mm lens @ 24mm.

I'll be doing this @Glacier Pt., yosemite, hopefully w/ Half Dome in the fore ground.

 

Thanks again.

If you get anything good then by all means post up some pics.  I'd love to see your Yosemite pictures.
