I've just received my HQ camera which I've purchased to use mainly for astrophotography. Reading through posts here, I can't find a way to use the camera in bulb mode, that is, where the shutter is opened manually and it remains open until it is manually closed. Such as for photographing a meteor shower.
I am assuming that the 200 second limit is built into raspistill and is not a function of the camera hardware. Is that true? If so, is there 3rd party software or raspistill variant code I can compile?
I don't see python controls for shutter open and shutter close.
I apologize if this is an already asked question, some days my search-foo is better than others. If so, please link me to the post.
Thanks for any information.
