    I understand that for some SLR cameras you can use the self timer as a poor-man's mirror lockup. This only works for models in which the mirror goes up as soon as the self timer is actuated. This is not the case for all cameras. Some cameras wait until the self timer times out before the mirror flips up, just a fraction of a second ahead of the shutter. This scheme would not work for such cameras.

    The perfect camera for this job is the Olympus OM-1

    Got two SRT-101s in today off of eBay. The were both listed as-is but after a little CLA and new batteries the shutters fire and the meters appear accurate. I have a T-Mount already so now I just need a clear night to do some lunar photography. Thanks for all the advice!

    I use a Minolta sRt 102 with a 28mm lens and the mirror lock up. It's a great camera for astronomical photography.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.
