Question

can you please tell me why the file size on avi planetary captures are so small i.e 960*480 if i click the 5x option i still only a smal increase in size

i have a canon eos r and although it works great on all the functions i have tested so far this limitation is a big disapointment as i may as well use my zwo asi120c for planetary if this is the best i can do

BYE's Planetary mode captures LiveView frames and assembles them into a video. The LiveView frames have been downsampled in the camera to fit on the camera's LCD screen which is approximately 1/5th the size of the full sensor.

Using 5X zoom captures the portion of the Live View screen inside the zoom box and downloads it at the full resolution of the sensor. This is the best possible solution, given the limitations of the camera itself.

It is not taking the data "from the lcd screen". It is taking the same data that is being sent to the screen. That is how the Canon API that provides BYE with the ability to control the camera works. BYE is at the mercy of the control allowed by Canon.
