  3. Hi, I am a legally register user/owner of Backyard eos for both Nikon and Canon. I just downloaded the latest 2.1.2 software. It's asking for my registration code. I cannot find, and when I launch the older version it flashes too quickly. So: My name: Joe Mezzafonte email: Jmezzaf@verizon.net User name: JoeM Can you email me or tell me how to retreive my Key. Thank you

  5. OK, the "drivers" in question are really versions of the Canon Software Development Kit (SDK). The SDK is a software library from Canon that allows 3rd party apps like BYE to control their cameras. From time to time Canon releases updates to the SDK where they add support for new models and drop support for old models. BYE provides 2 versions of the SDK. One is the most recent version at the time of a BYE release and the other a very old version (2.10) that allows BYE to try to support very old camera models that Canon no longer supports. I have BYE installed in this folder -> C:\Progr

    Prodigy Microfocuser
    Prodigy Microfocuser is a robust clear 3-inch robotic focuser which allows you to precisely and remotely control the focus of your telescope setup.

    Its sturdy mechanical design ensures that Prodigy Microfocuser can lift up to 10Kg of equipment, dead accurate and flexure free. Focuser has a 25mm of draw tube travel and a clear aperture of 76mm / 3”.

    The full 3-inch focuser drawtube accepts different types of telescope adapters such as Celestron SCT Edge, GSO RC types and refractor types.

    Prodigy houses 2xUSB2 switchable ports and 2x12V switchable power outputs that provide electric “juice” to your equipment close to the focuser (e.g Filter Wheel, Guiding camera etc).
    Clear aperture of 3 inches
    Prodigy Microfocuser has a clear aperture of 3 inches or 76mm. Its drawtube can travel up to 25mm

    Adjustable rotation
    Focuser allows adjustable rotation / precise orientation on both sides. This helps you to easily fit the microfocuser to your telescope and also place your camera with the desired orientation.
    Innovative design supporting highweight loads
    Prodigy Microfocuser is not a Crayford neither a Rack & Pinion type. Its innovative mechanical focus design provides very high load support and accuracy with zero maintenance. Prodigy Microfocuser can easily lift up to 10Kg (22lb) of imaging equipment with zero flex

    Zero Motor Backlash
    Embedded stepper motor design ensures a smooth, low noise and backlash free operation. V-Curve points during automatic focus procedure are dead accurate.

    Available Adapters for telescopes
    Prodigy Microfocuser can accept different types of telescope adapters. The adapter can be securely mounted and aligned on user’s preference.
    Industrial grade USB Hub and Power Ports
    At the side of the focuser you can locate:

    2 x switchable USB2 ports
    allowing the connectivity of equipment close to your focuser such as a Filter Wheel, a guiding camera, a motorized OAG etc.
    2 x 12V switchable Power outputs
    Each output (2.1mm) can output up to 4Amps

    A neat feature to tide up your USB and Power cables.
    Each of these ports, USB or Power, can be switched ON/ OFF via the supplied software.

    Temperature Probe
    An external digital temperature sensor input is located on the side of the focuser. A digital temperature sensor is included in the package. The probe can be placed near the focuser so the exact temperature of the focuser / environment can be seen through the supplied software or ASCOM driver.
    Expansion Port / Manual Focus (optional accessory)
    Prodigy has an expansion RJ45 port on the side of the enclosure.  This port allows the connectivity of our “upcoming” hand controller for this product.
    Standalone program available
    Prodigy Microfocuser can be operated by our standalone software.
    (Only available for Windows OS).
    Firmware upgrade support
    Firmware supports re-programming via the USB 2.0 connection using upgrade software ((only available for Windows), for future upgrades which may become available. We constantly receive feedback from our customers and keep updating the firmware and software with new features.

    EZY Focus Hand Controller for UPBv2 and Prodigy
    The EZY Focus Hand Controller is a perfect match for your Ultimate Powerbox v2 or Prodigy Microfocuser. This little device allows precision control of your motorized focuser. It also ensures a vibration free focus routine!

    Digital Encoder with a Push button
    The rotary knob simulates the knob of your focuser. Rotate the digital knob and easily focus! Precision can be achieved when you press the knob inside. Speed is reduced to 1:10 just like the fine focus knob of your focuser! Click it again to switch to coarse focus.

    Pushbuttons to Focus IN and OUT
    Two additional buttons “<< and >>” allows you to move the focuser IN or OUT by the exact and preconfigured step count you have set in the EZY Focus menu. Every time you press the button an audible beep confirms the motor movement.

    Can work simultaneously with PC motor operation
    Just plug the hand controller in the EXT port of the Ultimate Powerbox v2 or Prodigy Microfocuser and enjoy precision in manual focusing without vibrations. No need to remove the hand controller when you use your PC to control the motor. Both can work in parallel and sync motor position in screen.

    Organic LED display with Red Film
    A 1.3 inch 128 x 64 pixel Organic LED (red film) screen is used for the device. It will ensure that your night vision will be unaffected.
    Large fonts, Legible letters displaying motor position, motor position presets and settings menu
    Temperature and Humidity Sensor.

  28. You won't find a setting for this in BackyardEOS because it is a Windows permission issue. If it used to work, and now it does not, something has changed on your computer/environment.
