Due to a few minutes of totality I want to find a way to take pictures automatically. But as far as I understand it is still not possible to take photographs programming a camera for interval with different exposures, let me say 1/1000, 1/250, 1/60, 1/2, 1 second, 5 seconds, 10 seconds. Using a Computer and USB connection, it is not possible to take pictures with different exposures. Maxim DL is a astronomical program to connect a camera to a telescope for remote-photography by the stars and deep sky, but as far as I understand it is not possible to program exposures of 1/1000, 1/500 or 1/60 second.

I would be grateful if there are somebody with knowledge how to make your own program and interface or with experience about MAXIM.
