Does it happen when you connect via a single short cable, as recommended by Nikon.?

It is my understanding that active extension cables restore the signal to allow longer cabling distances, but each cable should be a max of 5m in length. There is also a limit of how many active cables you can chain together. I have never heard of using pure USB to go 30 meters. I used a USB2-Cat5 converter to go that far, but even then one of my guide cameras would not work.

When you need to run that distance the more typical solution is to put a PC near the telescope to run everything and connect that PC to your home network. Then you can use TeamViewer or some other remote desktop software to interact with that computer from another PC on the network.

Thank you for all your answers - it stop beeping when I just connect with the "short" cable direct to the camera. The problem is the long USB cable. I will have to figure that out maybe as astroman133 just suggested with remote desktop.

For info - when the camera is connected to the laptop and turned on it do not beep - the beep starts when I connect it with Backyard and that must have something to do with it is only a USB disk for windows and the beep starts when the data traffic starts with Backyard
