Nikon D300s Intervalometer

The Nikon D300s stops at 100 shot's on continuos at 30 seconds each using a hanel cable release and won't continue unless you depress the shutter button on the cable release then repress to start the process again.
This is really annoying if you are doing star trails where you would probably be shrouded in darkness and don't actually want to touch any part of the camera or cable release until you have finished, especially if you are doing shutter releases into the hundreds.
Does anyone know if I bought an Intervalometer cable release for my d300s you can go beyond the 100 shutter releases that I am constricted to as clock watching is annoying and not my forte Smile
Thanks for any help you can give.

Not sure about that, but if you have an iphone or android smartphone this is very good for startrails: Triggertrap

Thanks for the feedback.
I have an android phone with apps but I really need to know if a wired intervaometer will keep the shutter going for as long as I want as I may purchase one if it does, it would also make life a lot easier.
