Considering ordering your Astrus? Then take a look at this UPGRADE OPPORTUNITY 


We've just created a 2 in 1 remote: T&A - Tempus & Astrus. It's a Time-Lapse remote AND a Long exposures remote for Astrophotography. Learn more about T&A here.



What is the Diference between ASTRUS and TEMPUS?

The 2 remotes are physically similar but have different functions. With TEMPUS, you set TIME BETWEEN PHOTOS on the remote, and it will make your camera take a picture from TIME to TIME. Better suited for time-lapse photography.
With ASTRUS you don't control time between photos, you control EXPOSURE TIME. You first set your camera to BULB mode, and with ASTRUS you can get photos with 30 min exposure for example. Most cameras only allow 30 seconds. with this remote you get as far as 30 minutes. It also has a repeat function, so it will take a photo with the amount of exposure time you choose, and it will repeat the order again and again until you turn it off.
ASTRUS is better suited for ASTROPHOTOGRAPHY where long exposures are need. You can take pictures of the night sky with star-trails.

The best way to explain it is with an example:
When you use TEMPUS, and you set it for 10 seconds interval between photos, for example, it will:

- Send IR signal to camera to take picture
- wait 10 seconds before repetition

- Send IR signal to camera to take picture
- wait 10 seconds before repetition

- Send IR signal to camera to take picture
- wait 10 seconds before repetition

- Send IR signal to camera to take picture
....

If your camera is in normal remote mode, it will take a picture every 10 seconds.

When you use ASTRUS, and you set it for a 2 minute exposure time, for example (your camera set in BULB mode), it will:

- Send IR signal to camera to open shutter
- wait 2 minutes
- Send IR signal to camera to close shutter
- wait 3 seconds before repetition

- Send IR signal to camera to open shutter
- wait 2 minutes
- Send IR signal to camera to close shutter
- wait 3 seconds before repetition

- Send IR signal to camera to open shutter
- wait 2 minutes
- Send IR signal to camera to close shutter
- wait 3 seconds before repetition

- Send IR signal to camera to open shutter
- wait 2 minutes
- Send IR signal to camera to close shutter
- wait 3 seconds before repetition
....

ASTRUS gets you 2 minute exposure photos, with a 3 second interval between closing and opening the shutter for the next photo.

I like it!

I bought it for my husband, and he just loves it. We now have a big wall poster with a photo of star trails he's made with this device. Great customer care too.

    Great for Star Trails

    I was inlove for those Star Trails images i saw on the web, so I soon discovered my camera alone could not do those. I've found Astrus on a google search and I'm much pleased with its results.
