I want to take some night shots of the sky and landscape showing up stars and cars on a distant road.
I have the option to set the shutter speed to 30s, but I want to take a 2 min (or more) exposure, to capture more movement.
I've seen that you can set it to bulb mode, and hold the shutter down, which isn't practical, as I ned the camera to be completely still.
I could buy a remote, and keep my finger on this I guess, but it still seems a bit fiddly.
Am I missing a trick ? or is the solution to buy a remote?

I just discovered last week, that whilst in Bulb mode, a single press of the wireless remote opens the lens, and a further press (minutes later possibly) will terminate the exposure, giving you full control of the exposure length. Before I discovered this, I purchased a wired remote, which did the trick also, but the wireless remote is so much easier.
