    Shutter issue

    Last night I went to do some shots of the milky way. Set shutter speed on 20", took the shot. Checked the image on the LCD screen, looked good in focus etc. Hit the remote release for another image here shutter speed was changed to 1/60 of a second. Scratched head thought "OK maybe I hit something." Reset ss to 15" hit release button worked fine. Hit release button again within a few seconds ss was on bulb shutter just stayed open, hit release button again to close shutter. Reset ss again this time paying extremely close attention so as not to touch anything else set to 15" again pushed release button again worked fine. Now all this said I was trying to get images to photo stack. So hit release button again within seconds 1/30 ss.
    Now the camera was sent back to Nikon in July for a shutter issue but that time the shutter would stay open when set in manual mode but worked fine in auto mode, but who shoots in auto?
    So my question is do I have to allow the shutter to cool between shoots? Of only 15 to 20 seconds?

    Don't have a d750 but have taken long exposures back to back with d7100 with no problem. You are using a remote release what type? Can you duplicate the problem with out the release? The in camera setting are actually changing? Battery condition?

    I am using the Nikon remote release and yes using a 2 second delay it repeats the shutter speed changing. Battery is the one that came with the camera, approximately 5 months old. Yes the shutter speed is actually changing on its own.
    I also have a 7100 and have done exposures up to 3 minutes without any issues.

    I've never used it. Going through the menu No it's off.

    Bracketing is turned on by Pressing the bracket button by the flash and turning the Command dial from 0F to 1F, 2F, 3F in the LCD window... not in the menu.

    I understand that. But when you shut the camera off doesn't the bracketing function disengage?

    Well I pushed the bracket button and got a BKT in the screen. Turned the camera off and now I don't have the BRK on the screen.

    Press and HOLD the button in... look at the LCD... If the Frame Counter is anything other than 0 then bracketing is ON and your problem... If it is 1F, 2f, or 3F... Then while holding the bracket button IN, turn the command dial until the Frame counter changes back to 0F
