  2. Est-il possible que mon PC démarre une alerte visuelle ou sonore lorsque mon Canon se déconnecte de BackyardEOS? Un grand merci par avance

    EOS -Ra

    I finally uninstalled BYE and EOS utilities. Reinstalled 3.1.18, drivers for camera and bingo. BYE recognizes the camera and I have complete control. Thank you to everyone. Now all I need are clear skies. Happy Holidays.

    thank you. I will try that next.

    EOS -Ra

    BYE checks if the EOS Utility is running and if so it will not try to connect. I don't even have the EOS Utility installed on my PC so my instructions will be necessarily vague. I believe that there are configuration options in the EOS Utility menus that will allow you to disable starting the EOS Utility automatically when you plug the camera into the USB port. There is also an configuration setting in BYE to skip checking for the EOS Utility. Skipping this check is OK as long as the EOS Utility is running, but not connected to the camera. If you cannot figure that out then I would suggest uninstalling the EOS Utility. This would typically be done through the Programs & Features applet in the Control Panel. I hope this helps.

    EOS -Ra

    thanks for the reply. I am a total Mac guy switching to a PC and i am so lost. I assume if the CanonRa worked once it should do it again. I am confused about the EOSUtility. The task manager does not show anything is running. when i connect the camera the EOS Utility 3 dialog opens but there is no control over anything. Don't laugh. I have no idea what to do next.

    Make sure that you didn't somehow re-launch EOSUtility (check with TaskManager). EOSUtility defaults to Running in the Background and Launching on Reboot - there are Checkbox Settings within EOSUtility to defeat these Actions (but then you have to fully Terminate the App). Also, ensure that you are Connected - DSLR to Laptop - via USB. (Not sure if you might have connected via WiFi using EOSUtility.)

    EOS -Ra

    Just for your info. I took a break and came back and tried to connect my Canon Ra and it will not connect now. It was working perfectly before. Not sure what I did but I will try some things.

    Glad you got it to work. No need to send the log files. Regards,

    EOS -Ra

    I had the camera in Bulb mode. Switched to M and it seems to be working just fine. Thanks Astroman 133. I am new to this and appreciate the help. I can still send log files if you would like.

    EOS -Ra

    It means I did nothing special for the RA in the latest release to provide any support for the RA. It also means that I need the log files to investigate. I got the EOS-R to work so it is just a matter of time before I can make the Ra work... but I need the log files. Follow the steps below to send the log files.

    If you say you are surprised that it connects then that means the Ra is not supported? How do I send you the log files?
  14. Commisserations... It has unfortunately been a common practice for Miscreants to spread Malware by packaging it with commonly downloaded Software - especially older Software that is no longer actively supported by its Owner / Creator. All that one can do is be decently Vigilant, and take common steps to ensure that your Malware / Anti-Virus Software is Updated and Turned ON; And configured to Scan all Files / Packages as they are Downloaded (different than just checking "Safe Site" status). Often the Website Operators have No Knowledge of what is Packaged in the Files offered for Download (that's how this all works...) I hope that your "IT Doctors" set you up with Active Malware / Anti-Virus Protection as part of their Repair. It is very Unusual that ANY Virus or Malware could Physically Damage any part of a Motherboard. Motherboards are designed with Hardware Protection Circuits for almost ALL forms of Over-Voltage / Over-Current / Over-Temperature / Over-Humidity conditions. Perhaps your Audio Component Issues are only Coincidental. But in any case, glad that you were able to find a Solution.

    Is the camera in Manual mode?
  16. Hey Guylain, this is more informative than problematic, a short while back you may recall I had some issues with Registax6, (May of 2019) not working well at times, unable to "WRIGHT TO CERTAIN PROGRAMS" even had to run it as "Administrator" etc.? Finally just un-installed it and waited until Dec. to try again. Downloaded it about a week ago, this time all seemed A-OK. Just 24hrs. later I lost all audio, speakers, headphones and all. I exhausted every avenue that Window's and Microsoft suggested, with various trouble shooters, no go! It was not as though they were simply "Muted" they were disconnected! So the laptop goes to the shop for I.T. Drs. to examine. They tell me that evidently, a virus+malware road in on the coat tail with Registax6. The virus chewed up the audio card part of the motherboard, hence, no audio! Could cost several $$$ to repair, in the meantime an external USB patchcord and speaker is my audio. I'm also told this is a common problem with free software (Firecap, SharpCap, AutoStakkert2, Registax6, etc) I don't know if anyone else has had a similar experience, but thought you might like to be aware. By the way, "NORTON SECURITY" indicated it was a safe site.

    I'm surprise that it connects. Please send me the log file.

    EOS -Ra

    I can connect my EOS Ra using 3.1.18. However, it will not image. I can change paramaters on the camera but it wont take an image. Is this because the Ra is not supported yet (SDK) or that I am doing something wrong.

    Your 30-day trial key was issued October 28th. It's a free 30-day trial and it expired November 28th. Regards,
  24. I am getting the same "License validation error" message as others have posted. I have looked at "My purchases" and found my lic key and identifier. I have entered my identifier several times and case sensitive. I have also manually reentered the lic key several times. I still get "LICENSE VALIDATION ERROR! THIS TRIAL LICESNE HAS EXPIRED" How do I fix this issue? Trying to capture some targets this evening an need to get this addressed ASAP. Thanks all !!
  25. Astrodon: If you want the look of Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images, such as the famous “Pillars of Creation” (the Eagle Nebula, Messier 16), then the next filter to consider adding to your collection after H-a and OIII is the SII (es-two) or sulfur filter. The SII filter, like H-a, is a deep red filter near 672 nm. H-a, OIII and SII filters provide that Hubble look for many emission nebula. Again, tri-color narrowband imaging with these three filters can be done with the moon up, so your equipment is not sitting dormant for several weeks.

    Astrodon SII filters have a center bandwidth of 671.6nm

  27. Astrodon: Bring Out The Faint Structures In Nebulae
    Astrodon Narrowband filters set a new bar of performance and durability for imaging and research. We offer 5 nm and ultra-narrow 3 nm bandwidths.

    Astrodon OIII filters have a center bandwidth of 500.1 nm.

    $564.00 USD

  28. Astrodon: The next filter to complement your LRGBH-a set is an oxygen filter. OIII (“ohthree”) emits light near 500 nm and is a blue-green- or teal-colored filter. Many of my images of planetary nebula and supernova remnants are taken only with H-a and OIII filters. They show great structural detail, but have natural colors, looking like an RGB image.

    Astrodon OIII filters have a center bandwidth of 500.1 nm.
