Hey guys, first off, this is an awesome awesome thing you have here, thank you so much for doing it, and keeping it going!
I have just bought a IXUS 80IS, just so i can use it, and CHDK for astro-photography, so I am looking forward to this immensly.
I got CHDK installed on SD card, and working on the camera - histogram showing, OSD all good etc, but then the weirdness started - sometimes it uses the override settings, and sometimes it doesn't. I have been playing with setting exposure manually - still trying to get used to it - as this, and focus, is the important thing for shooting the sky, and seriously, I get the red override on the OSD ... T:10, T:0.0001 etc, but when I fire the camera, it uses the canon settings ... most of the time.
Was trying the old button mashing technique (pressing shutter+left, shutter+down etc - to see what they do), and sometimes that fires with overrides ... now am I doing something really stupid? Or missing something stupid? I have read through the Dummies, the FAQ and the user guide, searched the forums for my camera make, and just can't seem to work it out.
