I have wiggles in my fireworks. I was shooting in bulb mode on a tripod, and thought I had turned of the autofocus but I hadn't. That might account for the wiggles.

I realized also that I wasn't sure how to use the cable release with mirror up so I didn't use mirror up - that may have contributed to the wiggles too.

The way I was using it was to press and slide the cable release button on-wait about 5 seconds and slide it back to the off position. How does one use the cable release when doing mirror up?

(They weren't all this bad!)
