    Please notice that the Canon 1100D is a new model and some older versions of Deep Sky Stacker won't have the codecs to read the raw files. Make sure you have the latest version of this programme which is available for download here (beta release):

    Magic Lantern
    To access Magic Lantern press the 'delete / bin ' button  in your camera. Navigate using the arrow keys and the 'select' button.
    Magic Lantern has an intervalometer built in, so there is no need to spend extra
    money  to achieve great time lapses and astro images. Also at the bottom of the LCD screen, you can see how many shots it will take based on the space available on your memory card, how long it will take to reach that many shots, and how long your resulting time lapse will be based on 30 frames per second.
    Disclaimer
    Please notice that Magic Lantern is a very powerful tool with great features for astrophotography. However, it is a third party freeware and there is a remote possibility  that it can damage your camera. If you selected Magic Lantern installed as an option and you later change your mind, simple format the memory card using your camera's settings menu. I take no responsibility for damage to your camera. Proceed at your own risk. For more information, please visit:
