Image flip

Question

I ran into a strange issue after upgrading to 3.1.17. My camera is a Canon T7i, full spectrum modified (dedicated astro camera so no wifi, no face tracking). For some reason, if I shoot an image below 180 seconds, the image is flipped at 90 degrees in a narrow frame. If I shoot at 180 seconds or above, the image looks normal. Any help would be appreciated, I would rather shoot at 2 minutes since I live in a bortle 7 zone.

Forgot to add, I have the premium version of BYEOS.

Image orientation is a display thing for the human eye, it has no relevance on the actual image your sensor is actually capturing. 

This said, you should have a setting in the camera re: orientation that forces the image to flip thinking you are taking and viewing daytime images.

It's just strange that this effect only started after I upgraded to the latest version & that it flips back normal after I increase the exposure time to 120 seconds or more. Just makes it a bit difficult to adjust my night plan when the initial orientation is off by 90 degrees after performing a preview. I'll look into the camera settings, this camera is dedicated to astrophotography only, it's not used for daytime photography & I haven't adjusted any settings except for what's needed to take my lights, flats, bias & dark frames.

Image orientation is not linked to image duration at all.

Perhaps you can elaborate more on what you are doing.  What do you mean after a Preview?  Are you in Frame&Focus? Do you mean Preview in Capture&Plan?

Are you taking JPG/RAW? 

Is the image flip on the camera LCD screen too?

Please be as specific as possible.

Nothing has changed in image display for several years... this is why I think this is a camera setting.

I'm in preview in Capture and Plan, RAW only. I keep the LCD screen closed on the camera. Next time I'm out, if it ever stops raining, I'll take some pictures with my phone & post them.

Remember:  You can do simple Camera Tests at your Kitchen Table.  If your Scope won't fit on the Table, you can use a standard Lens (but for sophisticated DSLR Models like the T7i, certain Lenses can effect the Actions of the DSLR). Just point the Scope out a Window and focus at something down the Block of along a Treeline /  Ridgeline.

In this case I think actual camera orientation is important.  If you do tests inside you'll need to orient the camera at different angles to see if it makes a difference in orientation.
