Having used BYE a few times for Planetary imaging, I have some questions that I have not been able to find the answers to in the help system.
1. Is there a way to save settings such as the nnumber of frames to capture and file type? I generally use 2,000 and AVI respectively but these settings revert to 100 and JGP/AVI on start up.
2. What is the delay, afiter capture, with some sort of memory count down about? Is it the transfer of cached frames to file? The time spent in this phase can but short but can also be quite lengthy.
3. Last night I noticed that capture time became slower and slower and eventually found that there was dew on the coorector plate making the image progressively dimmer. Does BYE adapt to changing brightness during image capture to acieve the requested "exposure"? Alternatively does this happen in the calculation phase at the beginning of capture?
4. I get the impression that the simulated live view "exposure" is brighter than captured in the AVI and/or JPG files and that I need to check captured images for exposure.
5. Sometimes the number of frames is less than the 2000 requested (sometime a lot lees). Does BYE drop bad frames and, if so, are there threshold settings to control this?
Overall I am getting good results from BYE and I am happy with it.
