    Ok, this ones looks like the one.
    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...E:B:SS:CA:1123

    Could someone please give it the once over and make sure I am not missing anything before I buy, I would appreciate it.
    I did notice it goes in 1 sec increments, does that mean I won't be able to have a 15 sec exposure?

    Thank you for the offer, but I really just want to buy the correct timer for my Rebel XS. I am a little slow trying to figure out which one is going to work correctly. Lately, I have been spending my time shooting the night sky and getting pretty good at it, now I want to take it to the next level and get a time-lapse going. The ones I have listed from Ebay seem like the right ones, but I just want to be sure.

    He could use several pictures, taken during several days at times where the stars were in the same place as the day before, thus keeping the landscape and the stars
    i find this a bit complicated, but i think it could work.
