    Going out deep into the high desert over the 4th. Going to try and get some good star and Milky Way photos. Star trails etc...

    I have the Yongnuo transmitters and receivers and they have never failed me.
    Question is, they also make a timer for D700, and I'm wondering if anyone has used it? or if its any good? It going to be a necessity for the trip. Any other recommendation for timers? I don't want it to break the bank.

    Also, anyone use the Photopills app?

    When you say "Timer" what do you mean. Yongnuo makes a nice little remote-release / intervalometer. I have one and it works very well as an RF wireless remote release. The D700 has a very good built in intervalometer, so if you just want to shoot a given number of images at a regular interval, you can do that without any equipment.

    Really? Yes intervalometer. I thought the built in was only for 1 exposure. Looks like I need to pick up the manual and actually read it.

    That's the built-in self timer. The intervalometer is accessed through the software menus.
