Remote Software, D3000, looking to run 'batch jobs'
I am new to this forum as to Digital Photography. I bought a new D3000 this past Christmas and am quite pleased with the camera.
I enjoy doing night photos - taking the same pics with different settings. Is there a software package that would allow you to take a given amount of exposures with different settings? IE, I'd love to take 100 pics each with a different speed/aperture settings, etc. I want to set up the frame, hit 'go' and sit back and relax while the camera does what I want it to do.
Please forgive if this is a newbie question - I'm still getting my feet wet. I only discovered that there was remote software today, so I'm a bit excited.

Welcome to Nikonians!
As far as I know, none of the Tethered software has that capability.
100 frames is a large number of images.
The higher end bodies have "Bracketing" capability, which will automatically change one of the shooting parameters providing a range of up to 9 images from underexposed to overexposed. A common use for bracketing is to capture an image with a Dynamic Range larger than the camera can capture with one image. You can combine the bracketed images using HDR (High Dynamic Range) software to create a single image incorporating the full dynamic range of the scene.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
