Beginner - Capture Plan questions

Question

I am setting up to capture the eclipse this Sunday. I want to bracket the exposures leading up to totality and at totality using the Capture Plan function. The strategy is to use one ISO and vary the exposure time. The problem is, I don't see how to set the exposure to less than 1 sec. I must be missing something obvious.

Al;so I want to repeat these plans over and over, with a set interval between each bracketed group of exposures. What is the best way to do that?

Thanks in advance.

Eric

You are looking at the Duration dropdown which is used to specify BULB exposure times. The shortest BULB exposure is 1 second.

To the left of the Duration column is the Shutter column. When your camera is in Manual mode the dropdown list in the Shutter column contains the complete list of Tv exposures that your camera supports.

You do not have many options for a "Capture Plan Iteration Delay".  You can add an extra Plan Entry Row to the Top or Bottom of your Plan which has a single Short Exposure AND a PAUSE value of up to 999 Seconds, to insert a 16min Delay that will execute with every LOOP Iteration.

I assume that you are planning some sort of Time-Lapse Capture??
