DSLR control

Hi All

Great time taking pics of the transit after a long drive from Sydney's northern beaches to Yass. No clouds at Yass. Cold though.

During my long time taking pics at prime focus with a Canon EOS5DII and the Canon software, I got to thinking there must be a better program to use than this.

Any advice.

Thanks

Harry

Hi Harry,

Have a look at BackyardEOS http://www.backyardeos.com/
I use it with my Canon 400D, takes alot of the guess work out of it, and it's reasonably cheap too...

And there's always the DSLR version of Maxim at a mere US$399.
