Totally new to Backyard Nikon - Live Stacking of Images


krazycanuck2011

Question

Sorry I am totally new to this software for my Nikon D7200 and D800 camera's. I am trying to determine if the program "live stacks" taken images one on top of the other to build up an image similar to Sharpcap? I am very curious if this can be done with this software in realtime vs post processing.

Thanks

Welcome to the group.

No, this is not what BYN is intended for... BYN takes individual images... including individual live view images in Planetary Recording.

Once you've acquired all of your images in live view (Planetary Recording in BYN) you need to feed them into your stacking software.

You could easily combine BYN with DSSLive to produce the equivalent of SharpCap LiveStacking.  DSSLive is part of the DSS (DeepSkyStacker package - freeware - current DSS v4.11 is found here )

You setup BYN to take a sequence of Exposures of whatever DSO you are currently targeting.

Then, you start up DSSLive and point it to the Output Directory for BYN's current Exposure Sequence (taking into account any File Path Modifiers you've selected such as Date or Target or ...)  DSSLive will Monitor that Directory, and every time it detects a New Image File it will add it to the current Live Stack.  (DSSLive has some of the same Settings and Controls as the regular DSS, plus others specific to Live Stacking.  It's UI is rather different looking - in keeping with it's mission to perform Live Stacking.)

DSS support is now found here (it moved to groups.io earlier this year):  DeepSkyStacker -@groups.io
