I recently got a Canon EOS 200D Mark II, it does great astro and milky way photography and I was wondering how to shoot a milky way timelapse. the timelapse settings in the camera make it so the longest shutter speed I use for a timelapse is 1/25 and an ISO of 12800. 1/25 isn't enough for a milky way photo so I was wondering how else I would capture the timelapse? Thanks! (P.S. Any way to do an intervalometer would be great thanks)

  • Can you really see any stars on a photograph taken using such a huge ISO? Isn't it just noise? Even with top high-end cameras, you would get a very noisy photo, using such ISO, and much worse with your entry-level one. To shoot a star sky, you should use as low ISO as possible with times in seconds or even tens of seconds (up to about 30 seconds when star trails start to appear as the Earth is rotating). – David Ferenczy Rogožan Nov 5 '19 at 22:54
  • And I don't understand how the fact you want to shoot a timelapse affects the shooting parameters. Simply use the same parameters you would use for a single photo of the star sky, shoot hundreds or thousands of photos and then put then together into a timelapse video. – David Ferenczy Rogožan Nov 5 '19 at 22:57

You can use a remote to take the pictures.

Your camera is not listed but I'm sure it will work since the connection is the same on all the cameras in the list and the 200D.
