    Which rule applies when the integration time is 60 sec and the sub-exposure is set to 30?

    According to the document first rule: "If the exposure time is less than or equal to twice the Subexposure Duration, a single exposure will be taken", there would be one sub-exposure taken of 60 sec.

    According to this rule: "If the exposure time is an exact multiple of 2X to 16X the Subexposure Duration, then the appropriate number of subexposures of the target duration will be taken and stacked.", there would be 2 sub-exposures each 30 seconds.

    Thanks,
    Elizabeth

    Small correction to the manual text:

    "If the exposure time is less than twice the Subexposure Duration, a single exposure will be taken."

    Thanks for pointing out the contradiction.
