"Should my buffer be full?"

I was doing star trails in the mountains this weekend. I used the shutter release remote and locked the button down. Set the exposure for 30 seconds in RAW 14 bit. Set the camera continuous low so it would just keep taking 30sec exposures using the Sandisk extreme pro. I went to check on it about an hour later and it had stopped after taking about 105 shots and it said (r00) which I figure means buffer Is full. Doesn't make sense to me though because if the buffer was going to fill it should have done it long before shot 105 and 30 second exposure seems like it is plenty of time to keep up.. Was the buffer full or could it have been something else that stopped it? I had 2 8 gig cards in there so I wasn't close to being full. Thanks

Oh, and a second quick question. How cold can it be outside before I take a chance of damaging my camera if I leave it out too long? It was probably 30 degrees or so.

Off the top of my head the default for maximum continuous release is 100 images. This is option D7. But you got 105 images???

Don't know anything about cold I live in the sub-tropics.

Aww maybe that is it, maybe it was 100 and I had a few test shots on there I forgot about. Next time I will just use the interval function I guess. Maybe that will work better.

Thank you both

What class of card?

Using NR can also bog the camera down.

FWIW, I just fired off enough frames on my D7k to fill the buffer, then switched to M to take a 30 sec. shot. I started out with a buffer reading of r09. When then buffer released, it was a good 15-20 seconds into the 30-second shot. Once the 30-second shot released, I had r06, so the system must use resources to take photos that the buffer uses.
