Planetary Capture question

Question

I've read several threads about planetary capture and live view, but I've not found the answer to my question. We're using a Nikon D5300, and tonight my wife wanted to do some test shots of Jupiter. Unfortunately, no matter what shutter speed - 1/30, 1/90, 1/500, 1/2000, etc. all resulted in the same overexposed, washed out images. 

So, what do we have to do with BYN to capture a planet such as Jupiter so it's not all washed out overexposed?

Thanks!

Do you have Maximum Sensitivity unchecked in the LiveView settings area of the BYN settings dialog?

Also, it may help to pause LiveView in BYN, make the exposure change, then Resume LiveView. You can play with this with a lens on the camera while sitting at the kitchen table. You do not need to waste a dark night.

Here is another thread with similar issue:

Hi Rick.

Thanks very much for the quick reply!

Maximum Sensitivity is unchecked.

Pausing LV, changing settings, resuming LV has *no* effect. This was true for my wife's D5300 and my D5100 on our two different rigs.

Wife's using a Dell E4200 w/Win10, I'm using an Acer Aspire One w/Win7. Last night was first time for either of us trying to capture using the "Planetary" mode.
