Interval timer shooting seems easy. Just fix the camera on a tripod, switch off all automatic setups, start the program and wait to fill up the card(s).
However, I could not find yet a way to have a smooth from-day-to-night sequence. Whatever slightly overexposed setup for the day I choose, it will be too dark for the night.
I could find no software for auto-toning the whole sequence. Additionally, with too dark pictures colour noise increases and does not look good. Any help is appreciated.
