Using BYE3.1.11 in Windows 10 Enterprise version 1607 build 14393.1358 64bit
BYE locks up hard, requiring Task Manager to end the task if MLU is programed.
The exposure series completes successfully but after the last exposure, the mirror stays locked up and BYE crashes hard.
Exposures were all 1/1000th second with no pause between frames.
MLU set to 1.
4 exposures, each on their own line.
Same crash with two different cameras.
Same crash if you put all 4 exposures on one line.
Same crash if you use an MLU of 4 seconds.
Even stranger behavior if you program in 5 second pause for each frame in addition to 5 second MLU...
Same crash if you also program in a 5 second pause between frames.
This is with the Canon215 driver for both the 700D and 600D.
Minimum MLU is 3 seconds even if it is set to 1 or 2.
This must be intentional programing of BYE because MLU of 1 or 2 results in an MLU of 1 second and 2 seconds respectively in Astro Photography Tool (APT).
Also, the crashes using MLU in BYE must be a bug because MLU works fine in APT with no crashes or lockup with exactly the same camera, USB cable and laptop.
Interestingly, in Solar Eclipse Maestro on a Mac, you can even program in a 1/2 second MLU and it works.
Testing all of this for the eclipse.
