Please take note that the D60 is not supported.

However, if it does connect and does allow you to take pictures it might just work.  But like you noticed you need a serial cable to take bulb images in addition to the regular usb cable.

 

Do you have a serial or DSUSB cable from Shoestring Astronomy?

Hmmm, according to the Nikon Camera Support Grid, the D60 model is not supported by BYN. That usually means that Nikon has not provided the software to support PC communication with the D60.

 

However, if BYN does work and you are able to take short images, then you should probably read the User Guide for how to configure the DSUSB serial cable for Bulb exposures. Open the User Guide and search for "serial cable".

If you are manually triggering the Bulb Exposures via a Wired Remote, then the DSUSB device would do the same thing AND allow all of this to happen directly under BYN Control.

 

But, it sounds like you are at least now able to perform Long Exposure AP Imaging.
