Shoestring Astronomy DSUSB - USB DSLR Shutter Control


The DSUSB is a USB peripheral for your computer that allows software to control your DSLR camera's shutter. The DSUSB from Opticstar includes all the necessary cables that will enable to conect the DSUSB unit to your PC and your DSLR camera.

Many people are now using Digital SLR cameras to take deep-sky photographs. Using the camera's internal shutter control typically limits the exposure time to 30 seconds. To get longer exposure times, the bulb stop (B) of the camera must be used. In bulb mode, the shutter is controlled by a remote control. If you wish to use a computer to generate the remote control commands, the DSUSB on this page will allow you to do so when used with appropriate software that supports this adapter.
Canon DSLR Cameras
The majority of Canon EOS DSLR cameras have a 2.5mm stereo jack remote socket (at time of writing this includes 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D 550D, 600D, 1000D, 1100D) but some will need a modified N3 controller to use these cables (20D, 30D 40Dm 60D, 60Da).
