I was playing around with the intervalometer tonight while I was trying to shoot some star trails. Instead of taking multiple 30" shots it only took two. I realized afterward that the problem was caused because I had the camera set up to only wait 5" between shots. Apparently one must set the interval between shots to be a few seconds longer than the shutter setting. I shot some test images in the house using that setup and it worked fine.

I'm thinking that the reason for this is that as soon as the shutter releases it starts the countdown clock to the next release. If the interval time is less than the shutter speed it's going to try and fire another shot before the prior one is "done".
