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.
