After looking at the options I've decided to give the Shoestring DSUSB DSLR to computer interface a try. Does anyone have experience using this product? I'm assuming Iceman is connecting his DSLR to the computer via a serial connection to achieve a similar outcome using ImagesPlus software.

I'm planning to use the Stark-Labs DSLR Shutter to control the Bulb exposure and the Canon EOS Ultility to control the other camera parameters and download images. Is anyone using the camera in this way?

I have another question regarding the USB connection direct to the camera (the white cable that comes with the 400D). Is this just a regular USB type A to USB mini cable? I am looking to get a longer cable to connect the camera (mounted on scope) to the laptop. Are there any issues using a longer cable anyone is aware of?

Cheers,

Peter
