I am quite new on this forum, I have a Nikon D600 and I am interested of astronomy. So I tried to photograph the comet PanSTARRS that was very near Andromeda galaxy and I forgot the intervallometer at home so I tried the built-in intervallometer. I set the intervallometer setting in the camera menus to 250 x 1 = 250 exposures and 5 sek delay. Iso 1600 @ 30 sek exposures with 5 sek delay between. But the camera only took 30 exposures and then stopped. I tried again an then it stopped with only 3 exposures.
I have a 16 gb genuie Sandisk card 45 mb/s transfer rate that was newly formatted before photographing
Anyone else that have the same problem? I hope I post this on the right forum.
Thanks in advance

Do you have NR activated and have you checked that the interval is long enough?
If you have a 20 sec exposure and you want 5 seconds between each, then you need to set the interval to 25 seconds
Hope that helps a bit

Check out these two products:
Both have advanced intervall features, among other things. The Promote Control functions best with the optional shutter release cable.
