Duel cameras time out!

Question

Ive  made some progress being able to get two cameras connected.  The goal is duel capturing same datat and info.   Im trying to double my integration times for astrophotography. During bench testing on my couch ,  D5300 cameras, No usb hubs, no lenses, caps on bodies,  both set on RAW same settings.     Per the BYN directions I put the camera 2 shortcut on my desk top and used that to open a 2nd BYN screen.  Was that ok?

Does Duel camera need to be checked in both master and slave BYN screens?   in 1502 instance I assume is slave if I click duel camera it takes me to the screen that shows the extra cameras. I thought 1502 IS the extra camera?  Im confused.   

Will the slave follow what the master is doing?  Do I need to input the ISO capture details in the slave 1502 camera?   If I want the slave to do everything the master is doing then why can I make the slaves capture plan different on the 1502 camera??

I tried and failed to get both cameras to fire at the same time.  There were some time outs as well.   Maybe these log files will show what I did wrong.   

Thanks

Nikon uses what they call Module to communicate with the camera (that's the SDK).  Each camera uses a different modules and it appears to me to be a static singleton instance per module.  If 2 cameras using the same module are connected to the same PC then the second one seems to overtake the first one and then they get confused.  This observation is based on my own experience over the years.  Canon has a better implementation regarding multiple cameras because they don't have that singleton concept.

It sounds like that needs to be mentioned in the BYN user guide section on configuring dual cameras.

I wanted to update my old post from March to say that I now have two modified Nikon cameras a D5500 and a D5300.  It was so seamless to connect them and then start dual Imaging! I barely knew what I was doing but the sub subs started flowing In.  So instead of getting one two three hours of data in a night I'm now getting 4 to 7 hours of data.  One part that confuses me is when I go to organize my Subs I have to do a better job of labeling things but that's the least of my concerns the program is Sublime.  Here are the telescopes before I added the cameras.  Thanks BYN!!
