I just acquired a full-spectrum modded Canon T5i. I am getting an incredible amount of noise on live view, to the extent that I can barely make out the star I'm using for focus. I have been using a T3i for the last few years and never had anywhere near this level of noise on live view.
I'm shooting through a 127mm triplet apo, using an Astronik clip-in UV/IR filter (since I'm using a refractor) tethered to a Dell Core i5 laptop running Backyard EOS (licensed). Admittedly, I'm shooting under very poor conditions; I live in a white zone within spitting distance of downtown Columbus, OH. I was also using a LP filter.
The modded camera does a phenomenal job with infrared subjects using a Hoya IR pass filter and the kit lens, so I don't think this is an issue with the mod. And as I said previously, I have been using a T3i with this setup without any problems (except, of course, the truncated red end of the spectrum).
Ideas for settings I might be missing (either on the T5i or in BYE) or something else I should be considering? Thanks!
