Astro tracer and wifi question.

Quick question to those who have a K-1, can the astro tracer be triggered (and the result viewed) from the phone via the wifi app?

You can trigger a bulb exposure but when the GPS is on it no longer shows B in the app but Astrotracer symbol even if you have the astrotracer turned off. I.e No I can not get it to work.

I will put this in the bugg thread

Ok, thanks.
Seems like a bug and a missed opportunity.

They should enable all drive modes, too. At the moment only single-frame is supported.

Yes, as in the tether where you start continous with one press and stop with a new press.

Also the intervallometer would be nice to use together with the astro tracer.

And while we are at it, add multiple exposures with frame alignment (the HDR function can align the frames if I recall correctly, so the function is already there). That way one could also stack the resulting astro photo in the camera. That might be overkill though and perhaps it is safer to do that off camera. But triggering the astro tracer with the intervallometer would be nice.
