George,

I use BYE version 3.1.16 with a T5i and am not able to duplicate your issue. For me the .TIFF file is saved in the same folder as the .CR2 and .JPG files. The folder used is determined from the Settings that you define for Image Capture. For me it is in a folder that uses the date of the imaging session and the target name. I use a 12 hour offset for selecting the date so that all images captured during a nighttime session use the same date as the most recent sunset.

Of course this feature requires that BYE is running with a Premium (or Trial) license.

Please provide more information about your setup.

That behavior may be by design. A TIFF file that is created from a JPG would have less accurate information than a TIFF file that is created from the raw data. This is because raw data is lost when the JPG file is compressed in the camera.

In general, it is recommended that you shoot your astrophotography images using RAW. This gives you the most data to work with for image calibration, stacking, and post processing.

Correct, this is by design since a TIFF file *IS* a raw image format as well.
