I have very little operating time on my D90 and I am stumped and found no help in the manual. I am about to drive several hundred miles for a photo op of the May 20 annular eclipse. I have purchased a solar filter for my 8 inch telescope and adapters to put my D90 at prime focus (in place of an eyepiece),i.e. no lens attached to the camera, using telescope for lens. OK I know I must focus manually (no problem) but how do I get the shutter to operate? (my big problem) Hopefully there is a way to get the camera to make an automatically exposed shot, ignoring the lack of a Nikon lens mounted to it.

I'd really appreciate some help with this.

Patrick
