As for the battery issues, all NiMH lose their battery life over time.  NiMHs can lose 80% over 12 months.  On the other hand LSD NiMH (like Sanyo eneloop) retain 85% of their charge after 12 months.

AFAIK, this works with AUTOBUILD CHDK releases.  Worked fine with 0.9.3-688 & 0.9.6-714 on my A570 & A720.

Hello. 

I don't have the problem of the 'delay 1st shot' being added to the time between each shot.

Great script, I have used it a lot in the 4 days that I've had this camera and CDHK. 

However, I noticed that the 64 second exposure makes the stars and clouds move too fast for my tastes, so I made a minor addition to your version, allowing the user to set the exposure length for their shots.

for a complete noob, (like i was 2 days ago) this addition is kinda complicated:

'-6' is 64 seconds
'-5' is 32 seconds
'-4' is 16 seconds
'0' is 1 second
'1' is 1/2 a second
'2' is 1/4 
'3' is 1/8...etc.

I would not recommend using my script unless you are familiar with Joshatdot's version, and the apex exposure system.

I have also changed some of the default values, and shortened some of the names of the options, so they will all fit on my screen. (yet another reason to be familiar with the original version before testing this one)

I have successfully used this on an SD1100 IS with firmware version 1.01b
