  2. Send me your most recent log file that shows the error.
  3. As soon as I can without goal. The problem, however, seems to be from BYN who cannot transfer the data to the PC, not the camera, in fact, the shot does it ...
  4. I tried both to disable the anti virus and to put the BYN on the "withe list", but the problem is always the same! D:
  5. Yesterday
  6. Try without, curious to see if it will work. If it does work with a lens then try again with the lens and make sure it is set to manual focus.
  7. I am trying to help an online friend to decide whether a T6 and a T7i are compatible with a particular image processing program. Can someone provide me a RAW file from either of those cameras? Send me a Private message and I will provide my email address. Thanks!
  8. I can confirm that Nikon AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8 G lens is also fully controlled via Camera Control Pro. Just so you know.

    2 pcs license

    You need 2 license if you are going to use it on 2 computers at the same time. Please read clause #2 of the EULA.
  11. Please note that I am a long time user and not an admin, so my answer is not final, but it is in agreement with the License Agreement and what advice has been given in the past. It is possible to control to cameras from the same PC with 2 instances of BYE with only a single license, but if you are going to use BYE on 2 PC's at the same time then you need 2 licenses.
  12. ZWO Optical: ASI462MC is the latest color planetary camera of ZWO which adopts Sony IMX462 1/2.8” format 12bit ADC sensor. The 2.9um pixel size accommodates a well depth of 11.2ke with a total of 2.1MP pixels.

    With the ability in capturing infrared lights, the super high sensitivity and ultra low readout noise, this camera is considered as the upgraded version of ASI290MC, and will offer great performance for planetary imaging, solar and lunar imaging.
    IMX462 sensor
    The format of the IMX462 sensor is 1/2.8”. The sensor length and width are 5.6mm*3.2mm and the diagonal is 6.46mm. The resolution is 1936*1096.
    HCG mode
    The cameras has a built-in HCG mode which can effectively reduce the readout noise at high gain and keep the same wide dynamic range for this camera as at low gain. When the gain is 80, the HCG mode will be automatically turned on. Additionally, the read noise is as low as 0.47e while the dynamic range can still be close to 12stops.
    QE curve
    ASI462 has very high QE value at 800-1000nm wavelength (almost 2 times higher than that of ASI290MC). It’s sensitivity in near infrared light regions ranks first among all ASI planetary cameras.
    ASI462MC vs ASI290MC
    In general ASI462MC and ASI290MC share very similar parameters but ASI462MC has lower readout noise and higher QE value.
    USB 3.0 Port & ST4 Port
    USB 3.0 Port: Providing 5Gb bandwidth to let ASI462 run at 136.1fps (10bit, high speed mode) or 63.9fps (12bit, normal mode) at full resolution(2.1Mega).

  13. ZWO Optical: ASI2400MC Pro uses Sony latest back-illuminated IMX410 full frame format 14-bit ADC sensor. It is a 24MP camera with a big pixel size of 5.94um that can accommodate a super large well depth of 100ke.
    The First CMOS Astro Camera Which Adopts Sony IMX410 Sensor
    ASI2400MC Pro uses Sony’s latest back-illuminated IMX410 full-frame format 14-bit ADC sensor. It is a 24MP camera with a big pixel size of 5.94um that can accommodate a super large well depth of 100ke.

    With the ultra-low readout noise of 1.1e and amazing zero amp-glow, the ASI2400MC Pro is born to be another great innovation of ZWO in the field of full-frame cooled OSC astro cameras.
    Full Frame OSC Camera
    The ASI2400MC Pro uses full-frame format, the sensor length and width are 36mm * 24mm and the diagonal is 43.3mm. For now, it only has the OSC version, which is very suitable for beginner astrophotography.
    IMX410 Backlit Sensor
    The back-illuminated CMOS sensor improves sensitivity and noise reduction – the key factors to enhancing image quality, while radically realigning their fundamental pixel structure from front-illumination to back-illumination. It has retained the advantages of CMOS image sensors such as low power consumption and high-speed operation.

    With a conventional front-illumination structure, the metal wiring and transistors on the surface of the silicon substrate that form the sensor’s light-sensitive area (photo-diode) impede photon gathering carried out by the on-chip lens. A back-illuminated structure minimizes the degradation of sensitivity to optical angle response, while also increasing the amount of light that enters each pixel due to the lack of obstacles such as metal wiring and transistors that have been moved to the reverse of the silicon substrate.

    Camera Performance:
    Large well depth capacity, low read-out noise and high dynamic range.

    Though these two cameras share very similar pixel sizes (5.94um vs 5.96um), the well depth capacity of ASI2400MC Pro is 100ke, which is 132% of another full frame ASI camera ASI128MC Pro, so ASI2400MC Pro comes with ultra-high a dynamic range up to 14stops. Upon that, overexposure probability will be reduced, with richer color gradation gained.

    When the gain value is 140, the magical HCG high gain mode is turned on, the readout noise is greatly reduced (as low as 1.1e), and the dynamic range is basically unchanged.
    Anti-Dew
    ASI2400MC Pro comes with the polyimide heater that can avoid any dew problems.

    The anti-dew heater which completely fit the protective window will heat it to avoid any dew problems.

    The heat anti-dew heater power is around 5W and can be turn off in software to save power.
    Two-Stage TEC Cooling: Ultra-Low Dark Current
    ASI2400MC Pro uses two stage TEC cooling that can lower the CMOS sensor temperature to more that 35c below ambient, which can greatly reduce dark current generation and sensor noise even with extended exposure times.

    The unique dark current suppression technology can even further reduce dark current noise. When it’s cooled to -20℃, the current noise can be as low as 0.00035e/s/pix, which is completely negligible!
    Note:ASI2400 Pro camera requires 1A current from the USB, if your PC can not provide enough current, please use an external 12V power supply to power the camera.

     
    USB3.0 & 256M DDR3 Memory
    The ASI2400MC Pro is equipped with a USB 3.0 transmission interface and a built-in 256MB(2Gb) DDR3 cache to ensure stable and secure data transmission. Under long exposure, it effectively avoids frame dropping and greatly reduces the glow effect caused by slow reading speed.

  23. Your anti-virus software may be preventing the image download process from completing. Try operating the camera with the A/V software temporarily disabled. If this fixes your issue, you should whitelist BYN (tell the A/V software that BYN is OK). You should also confirm that you have write access to your Download and BackyardTEMP folders and that they are on a local hard drive that is always available.
  24. The version I have is the last one that makes me download, or 2.0.11. I go to shoot and at the top right I have the word "Busy" with a number 1 or 2 below and a kind of wheel that goes around! The "Abort" button has no effect if I click it. If I then try to close the program it says "BackyardNIKON is currentoly busy capturing images. Are you sure to quit?" What's the problem?
