    The default time on the Nikon D90 self-timer is for 10 seconds. Does anyone know how to change it to some other time? I can't figure it out, and manual doesn't seem to help me. Thanks!

    Oh crud, I saw that link but didn't bother to hit it cuz I thought it was just someone shooting multiple images, not showing how to set it. Thanks!

    For what it's worth, I set mine to the maximum.

    Yea, the 10 seconds wasn't working for me. Just trying to grab some quick images of the moon.

    The moon?

    The moon doesn't require a long exposure... in fact you dont' want a long exposure.

    Try the following, and experiment a little:

    Manual mode
    Shutter speed = to zoom (200mm = 1/200th for example)
    Aperture @ f/8

    See how that looks, if it's too dark change aperture to f/5.6 if it's too light change it to f/11 for starters.

    Enjoy!

    Have fun and please post your best attempts, the moon can be challenging - but fun as well.
