How to create plan with 3fps every 10 sec

What you are seeing is about as good as you can get. BYN's Imaging screen is optimized to work well for capture plans that take hours to complete with individual exposures being several minutes each.

I am not a Nikon owner, but I used BYE which has much the same functionality as BYN, in Planetary mode to take 5 sets of 3 frames with a 10 second pause between frame the frame sets. The maximum number of sets at a single go is 1000. 

A rough calculation says that a Planetary capture plan with 1000 sets  of 3 frames each with a 10 second delay between each set would take about 2.8 hours to complete.

There are some gotchas, however.

The first is that Planetary mode uses LiveView, so the your camera must support LiveView. The second is that I could not control the frame rate and with my camera and PC the frames come at a 15fps rate. The third is that the pictures are small JPGs since this is what LiveView provides. Finally, using LiveView for an extended period of time can cause the camera to shut down from overheating. I will leave that to you to test.

I hope this is useful.
