Canon G12


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to set up a camera on my Skywatcher 200p. My canon G12 is restricted to a 15 sec shutter speed and so I thought extra expense was going to be incurred.

I've recently found out that you can "hack" into the cameras settings and alter many of the factory settings, max shutter speed being one of them. The new settings are recorded onto an SD card, so the changes are immediately reversible on removing the card. You've got to be sensible, ie. you cant expect an non cooled sensor to last long if expose it to say 5 mins of daylight. I've upped mine to 30 secs. I've swapped the SD card for another for normal use, so that factory settings are back in place.

I'll try this camera on a Digiscoping bracket and hopefully post the results.

If anyone wants any more info.

Let me know
