  7. Could you implement a built-in Save To Camera delay time and expose it as a Setting? Then allow the user to set a value that they have determined works for their camera(s). A dropdown list, slider, or up/down control with a range of numbers from 1 to 20 seconds with an increment of 1/4 second should work.

  9. I fully understand the difficulties involved without proper support from the camera manufacturers. I'm not very experienced with BYN but BYE does a great job and it was my main capture tool for many years until I switched to CCD imaging. Maybe there are some other members who already discovered this trick for focusing the lens. Thanks to this method, not accessing the lens focus controls via BYN is not a show stopper for me. Yes, it's an extra step but not that much... Thank you for the great software and your excellent support as always. Clear skies
  10. That is great Sadat. I wish Nikon (and Canon) would provide real support and real documentation for their SDK in situation like this. I'm sure is not that complicated to do but without any real documentation it is like looking for a needle in a haystack in a barn full of haystacks... and then some. Regards,
  11. I stand corrected. It appears Nikon's Camera Control Pro is able to control every aspect of this lens except for the zoom function.. In live view mode you can focus the lens by selecting AF-S mode then you switch back to MF and proceed with the captuure via BYN. This way lens remains focused and AF is not activated during shooting. During all this, the switch on the lens remains at M/A position.This is a real game changer for me.
  12. Just tell us what version you are using. Or go to the Downloads page via the tab at the tope of this screen to see the latest. The problem with giving you a link to the "latest" is that after the next release, the link will be the same but the "latest" release will have changed. This is misleading to someone reading this thread two years from now.

    LENR Canon Ra

    Alan Dyer, although well respected, is wrong. You do not want to waste precious dark time taking darks. Take as much light frames as your can during the night and use/build a dark library that you can re-use time and time again some other time.... a cloudy night is the perfect time to take dark frames.
  14. Glad you figured it out.
  15. No, you can download directly from the website download section.
  16. Can you send me the link to download the executable of the latest version of BYN to my email?
  17. It doesn't work the same. I also tried to make a sequence with random values, but when I click "start session", it doesn't even start and it cancels itself! I do not know what to do...

    LENR Canon Ra

    Most astrophotographers recommend taking twice as many lights, and then applying 10 or 20 darks during processing, rather than using LENR, but I don't know if anybody has done a scientifically rigorous comparison to see how the results compare.
  19. Issue resovled. I rebooted the computer and all is working.
  20. Turn off auto focus and try again.
  21. Hi, Im trying to connect my Canon T3i (600D) to BYE and having issue. Camera is in Manual, connected via USB, I connect to the right camera setting., the camera information box shows everything for a second and then goes black. I look at camera icon and says connect, I hit connect again and does same thing. I just noticed it says SDK error. 11:57:19 Attempting to connect camera... 11:57:20 Canon drivers 'Canon\' initialized. 11:57:21 600D-T3i CONNECTED! 11:57:21 EdsInitializeSDK() ERROR! I also tried changing cables with no luck. Thanks.
  22. I had tried putting in new license key but kept saying key too long. Which was weird because after going back and looking, I noticed I forgot a letter. Put that in and all works fine now. Thank you Astroman!
  23. Your issue has nothing to do with downloading, installing, removing, or reinstalling BYE. You did not need to any of that. The software is the same for all licenses. It is the key itself that enables or disables features in the software. What you do need to do is to enter your purchased license key in place of the Trial license key in BYE's License Validation dialog..
  24. Hi, I had the trial version and it expired, so I just purchased and downloaded the file. When I click on icon, it says trial version expired and has that code key number. I put in new number and Identifier and doesnt recognize it. I uninstalled everything and reinstalled my recent purchase but keeps going back to the trial version. Am I doing something wrong? Wouldn't new purchased version overwrite the trial version? Thank you.

    LENR Canon Ra

    Thanks alot for very useful information. I have used BYE several years but am just now trying LENR with my new canon Ra camera. Good forum... fast results. Thanks all
  26. I think the version is the latest, as soon as I know I am writing it. I just did some tests with the camera lens and not with the telescope. Autofocus was on Auto on both the camera and the lens.
  27. Yes, it's true, what Google Translate can do! 1. No, no mistakes whatsoever. When I take the photograph, for example at 1/200 second per test, the machine clicks (I can hear the noise) then once it has taken, it says "busy" and starts to turn the icon at the top right , the problem is that it never ends! I am forced to close the program forcibly ... I have also compared it to videos of the software on Youtube and it absolutely does not do this job. 2. The selector is already set on "Pc only"
  28. Dark frames are NOT "of the same scene" as light frames.. Dark frames are ideally taken with no ambient light reaching the sensor so where the camera is aimed is of no consequence. Only the sensor temperature, exposure, ISO, and that no ambient light reaches the sensor are of any importance. Based on my testing, BYE's behavior is NOT as you state when you say that "Backyard EOS only allow an image of a specified length and then immediately downloads". BYE only downloads an image when the camera says that the image is ready to be downloaded. I turned on LENR on my T5i from the in-camera menus and used BYE 3.2.0 - RC4 to shoot images of different lengths (10 seconds, 1 minute, and 5 minute). In each case BYE patiently waited while he T5i shot and applied the in-camera dark frame, and only then downloaded the resulting image. It may be that at some point BYE times out and says that no image was available, but it did not occur with a 5 minute exposure. I don't know what would happen if you tried to take a 20 minute Ha image with LENR turned on. You should download the free 30-day trial of BYE and try it yourself, at the kitchen table, during the day, with the lens cap on the camera. Personally, I would prefer to capture twice as many light frames rather than use LENR, but I have no data to support my conclusion. However, my testing shows that BYE is programmed that LENR may be used and is tolerant of that.
