Good evening folks

Right...I am starting to get into astrophotography. D7000 + 300mm F/4 + tripod. I need to be able to take 20 x 2 minute "subs". I can get a remote from eBay which does this for me. However, with all default settings I get camera shake. So, I try "Exposure Delay". It may not be long enough for me. Whether it's one or two seconds. So, try MUP. But this requires two presses. Which means my remote can't do it.

Any suggestions? Is there a remote capable? Is there another mode I'm missing? Can I lengthen "Exposure Delay"? Or fix MUP so it requires one click with a fixed delay?

Thanks in advance!

PS I have other tracking equipment and filters too.
