Future Functionality in BYEOS

Question

Hi,

I am wondering if a future BYEOS update can include a ‘sensor analysis’ function similar that provided in Sharpcap and also a ‘smart histogram’ function? This would provide BYEOS users with a capability of enabling their local sky background brightness to be calculated and for the software to perform a mathematical simulation of the impact on the final stacked image quality arising from different exposure lengths?

 

Best Regards,

Steve

How can BYE simulate the impact of different exposure lengths on a stacked image when it works only with unstacked sub-exposures?

Would you expect to see the background sky brightness to be calculated for each image as it is displayed from the camera,  for an images as selected from the thumbnail, for previewed images?

Would you see any benefit for storing the characterized sky brightness in the image metadata?

Sky brightness can vary significantly, in gradients, across an image. I would think that for image capture purposes, a histogram displayed from the unstretched raw data, in both linear and logarithmic y-axis scales, would be sufficient for capture purposes.

Hi, Thanks for the response.

I'd rather hoped BYEOS could do this in a similar way that Sharpcap does for an image taken by the camera. It would be good from a Canon user perspective to have similar capability as Sharpcap provides to a swathe of other camera manufacturers. My understanding is that the compatibility of Sharpcap with Canon cameras is under development and could lead BYEOS users to employ an alternative product to meet their imaging needs but with greater capabilities sometime in the near future.

Here are links to the relevant parts of the Sharpcap manual explaining things in more detail and context. Hope this helps.

Further to my first post above I have found on page 6 of the Features Suggestion Box area a request by member anofeles dated 20.4.2015-

When we right-click on an image, a information about it appears (L, R, G, B, mean, median...) would it be possible to add the measure of the ADUs in a zone or certain point? It would facilitate the calculation of time exposition... and the time exposition for flats...

This was asking for a functionality akin to what I have raised for consideration albeit to a much simplified extent.

I am buoyed seeing that Admin 'liked' the request at that time. 😊

Cheers,
Steve
