    Hi everyone!
    I own a Pentax *ist DL, for reference.
    The Leonid Meteor Shower is coming up, and i really want to be able to go outside and make a 30-minute exposure of the sky, in hopes of getting some meteors. I tried out the "bulb" setting on my camera, and it works fine. i hold down the button, and the shutter stays open. BUT i have to hold my finger there and i cant do that for 30 minutes. is there any non-expensive way to go about being able to hold the shutter open for 30 minutes using the Bulb setting?
