I'm wanting to use my new XT2 for meteor photography - taking a series of 20sec exposures over several hours at night. To ensure I don't have to keep replacing batteries throughout the night, I have bought an external power source which powers a dummy battery, replacing the original battery. My question relates to closure of the battery door. I have lifted the small plastic plug, with long nose pliers, which is attached to a rubber strip. The cable, leading from the dummy battery, fits through a round aperture in the plastic plug. The plug can then be pushed to one side, via the rubber strip, to allow the battery door to close. This looks to be the way it works but I can find nothing in the instructions, or on the internet, to confirm this. Can any one confirm I have it right. I don't want to damage the camera! Many thanks.
