That's probably true and I have done so on subsequent shots.

Okey dokey, I was more (im)patient and waited for awhile and lo and behold the camera came alive after processing. Now to try it at night again. :hmm:

Thanks Fozz. I did did both the calibrations at home but not at the site. I'll try that too. I had it set to Bulb with the GPS on and had the AstroTracer symbol on the screen. The AF mode was set to MF. I'll play with it some more.

Last night I went out to try some astrotracing and I followed all the instructions before I went out to make sure it was working. So out in the dark outside of town the stars and planets were magnificent. I set the camera up on the tripod, turned it on, and clicked the shutter. The capture seems to begin but after a minute the GPS light went out and then I wait for the exposure time to elapse. Nothing happens. The camera is unresponsive. I turn it off and back on again and nothing. I thought maybe the battery died so I replaced it. Set it up again and same thing happens.

So my question is what should the K-1 be doing and what indications are there to tell if it's working? I know it's operator error and somehow I must have done something wrong. :confused:
