Adjust Exposure In Live View / Planetary Mode - BYN?


tomwade123

Question

Two nights ago I attempted to do some lunar imaging using the Planetary mode of BYN.  I wanted to get some AVIs to get max detail.  But no matter what I tried I was not able to adjust the exposure level.  Every movie was blown out looking at the full moon, as was live view.  How do you adjust live view and the planetary mode for exposure level?

 

I ended up taking a series of photos, but that was not ideal.  I'm sure I'm missing something on adjusting the settings in planetary mode.

 

Thanks in advance,

Tom

What did you try?

 

Turn off the "Maximum Sensitivity" setting in the LiveView area of the Settings page then shorten the exposure and lower the ISO to darken the frame.

I do have the "Maximum Sensitivity" box unchecked in the LiveView Settings.  Changes to shutter time and ISO didn't seem to have any effect.

For Nikons you need to pause live view, then make your adjustment, then turn live view back on.  

 

On some Nikon model you can press the OK button while in live view and this will activate the in-camera live view simulation and I think for these models you do not have pause/resume live view to have visual cues when making adjustment.

 

Hope this helps,

Okay, I will give that a shot.  Thanks.
