About This File

BackyardNIKON is Windows only software!

Take control over your Nikon DSLR. Purpose built for astrophotography.

There is no separate download for the Trial, Classic, or Premium Edition. Your software activation key will automatically enable the functions you are entitle to.

This is commercial software. This download requires a software activation key upon installation.

You can find your activation keys in your client area under "My Purchases -> Orders" from the top menu bar. 

To get your free 30-day trial key you need to add BackyardNIKON Trial Edition in your cart and proceed to checkout. This process is necessary to allow the activation server to generate a key. You will not be asked to enter a credit card number during checkout of a free trial key.

What's New in Version 2024-05-29   See changelog


BackyardNIKON 3.5.0 will install side-by-side of previously installed versions of BackyardNIKON; they can coexist just fine on the same computer. If you don’t need your previously installed version, you can remove it without any impact on 3.5.x.

We have aligned BackyardNIKON’s version number with BackyardEOS version number, hence the jump from 2.1.x to 3.5.x.

Your BackyardNIKON 2.1.x software key will work with BackyardNIKON 3.5.x ~ it’s a free upgrade!
