Hi to you all,

I have recently purchased a Hoya ND400 for some timed exposure work in Asia next month.
I have been reading up on this shooting process and have learnt to keep batteries fully charged with back-ups etc. but one thing I did wonder was;
Do long exposures make the sensor really hot?
Are there lengths of time that I should not exceed to protect my sensor?
Apart from potentially damaging the sensor chip, I didnt want to shoot a number of frames which, by letting the sensor getting hot, would be detrimental to the results of the image?....

I will be using D300s and D700.

I look forward to your valued opinions...
