I am somewhat of a beginner, and I am having trouble shooting star trails. My problem is that when I set up my camera to take startrail pics I was First using a  intervelometer and setting it up as such; Delay 5 seconds/ Shot 2 mins./ break 5 sec. / Shot 2 min./ Break 5 sec. so on and so forth for a total of maybe 25 shots to start. When I try it, I get the delay, and then the first 2 min. shot, then a 5 sec. break, then I hear the shutter noise but the shutter does not shut and stay shut for 2 more minutes.  I find that after the first 2 min shot it takes 2 more minutes before I can take another.This continues to happen. So I then thought that maybe it was a slow micro sd card (SanDisk Extreme 32GB V30 HC1 U3 A1). So I purchased a new Lexar Professional 64GB 150MB/s SD V60 U3 XCll C10 1000X. I find that I am still experiancing the same problem. What am I doing wrong? Please help.

Hi

 

Is "Long Exposure NR" set to ON in the menu settings?

 

I seem to recall having this issue when it was on when doing some 30 second plus exposures at night, the system would not let me take another photo until NR had done its work after the shot was taken and I recall it takes as much time as the initial shot.

 

I'd suggest setting it to OFF and see if that does the trick.

I agree that it sound like Long Exposure NR is on. The camera makes a recording of the sensor noise during a blind exposure that is as long as the real exposure to subtract the sensor noise from the photo.
