Slight Correction

First up, there was an error in the post below, of course the orange glow has nothing to do with moonset, it's just the result of light pollution from the surrounding towns and villages.

Also, as I've tried to go for longer sequences, I've hit the limit of the continuous shooting mode on the D3 i.e. 130 shots (100 on D7000). Given that the maximum shutter speed is 30s, we're limited to 50-65 minutes. It doesn't look like either cameras intervalometer helps either, as whilst at first glance it looks like you can set up to 999 exposures, that's not actually how it works... more on this and a possible solution shortly.
