hyewiz,

What camera do you use?

Some general pointers for Point & Shoot cameras would be,
• selecting the "Mountain" setting.
• Using a tripod if available, otherwise resting the camera on something sturdy.
• adjust aperture/shutter speed/iso for bracketing (The easy way is simply moving the exposure control 1 stop up or down or using AEB-Auto Exposure Bracketing).

Do you have any shots you tried? (including the exif/metadata to see what the camera did). Also, what do you plan to use bracketing for?

Cheers.

ELB,

 I have old PowerShot SD700 IS, I just started using CHDK, always admired Sunrise/Sunset photos
this is my first try as you all see its pure (beginners luck) I don't even recall what settings I had
http://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=6912.msg74001#msg74001
I like to find a step-by-step tutorial or help with the best setting on all the important fields if that's possible.

Thank you for your assistance

Zack
