The Sky-Watcher S20310 Cable Release is used in conjunction with a compatible Skywatcher mount and your Canon 5D camera to automatically take pictures without requiring that you manually push the shutter button. For instance, the Sky-Watcher AllView Mount can be set to auto-shooting mode, which will send signals via the electronic shutter release cable to the camera to automatically release the shutter for each shot in a panorama. The mount will slew to its proper picturing position, take the image and move to the next picture point without any intervention from the user. Other compatible mounts may use the Cable Release in different types of modes, so check the instruction manual of your particular mount for instructions.
Here are a list of mounts that are known to be compatible with the Sky-Watcher Canon 5D Cable Release:
- Star Adventurer
- All View
