I'm using a Nikon D300 with BYN 2.0.1. Assuming I'm not mistaken, when using the planetary imaging mode, BYN utilises the "live view" mode which restricts the resolution to that of the camera back panel, that being 640 x 480. With the current telescope and eyepiece combination I'm using (eyepiece projection), Jupiter is currently about 220 pixels across at the full resolution of the camera, but in live view mode, Jupiter is only 36 or so pixels across which is too small to show much detail. Whilst there is not much I can do about this, I'm wondering if the 5x mode available in BYN actually results in a useful increase in resolution compared to the 640x480 live view, or merely digitally blows up the image 5 times with no increase in effective resolution.
If someone can enlighten me on the actual effect of the x5 mode with the D300, I'd appreciate it.
