Help with Sunrise Holy Grail

We tested as good as we can. But there will always be things we didn't find. If you found things that apparently don't work as they should, you can report them here so we can take care of them as soon as possible.

Hi all,

yesterday I had an issue with shooting Holy Grail sunrise's timelapse. I started with the following settings @ 07:21 AM (sunrise was planned for 08:02 AM):

Camera settings: 5s, F4, ISO 3200 (6 stop ND filter)

Autoramp settings:
  • Algo: LRT+ up
  • Night: 5 4.0 3200
  • Day: 4 22 100
  • Interval 8s, duration 2.6h

Everything went well up to 07:44 AM, the expo ramped to 5s, F10, ISO 100. Then it stopped ramping and most shots where blown out.

My gear:
  • Nikon D700
  • Unelashed N1 firmware A 2.1.1, B 2.1.2, C 2.0.0
  • App Version 2.0.1 on iPod touch (MKJ02BT/A) iOS 12.5.3
What I noticed that might have caused this:
  • My camera clock was not accurate, Daylight Saving option was on so the camera had +1h
  • I'm not sure the GPS was fixed on the iPod when I started the sequence
Can those variables cause this kind of problem?
Is there a way for me to detect the problem during the sequence and avoid it?

Thanks in advance for the support
