Canon EOS Ra

Question

I have been using BYEOS since last July - and LOVE it ! It is one of the most intuitive pieces of software I have yet to use in this hobby.

I am considering purchasing the Canon Ra. I've weighed the plus/minus of cooled sensor but after spending two nights with a ZWO ASI071Pro and APT, I'm not ready to jump ship. Not at all. Some of my problems were self-inflicted (lol!) but it is far from an intuitive application. 

I see the EOS Ra is listed in table of Canon cameras supported by BYEOS - kudos to Guylain. Most of the other acquisition software packages are waiting for the update to LibRAW. Has anyone used this camera with plate-solving (Astrotortilla) ? 

With the raw output as the CR3 - do the images show up in preview and does the histogram work ok with them ?

If you could share your experience and any issues I would be grateful.

This is no difference between CR2 and CR3 as far as BYE is concerned. BYE has always displayed the embedded jpg image and it's the same for both format.

BYE will display the same image / histogram with wither format.

AstroTortilla has always read the JPG Image for Plate Solving purposes.  It should work as well with the JPG Exposures of the EOS Ra as any other DSLR, once you identify a suitable FOV setting for AT "hinting".  Of course, the JPG files (like the CR3) will be somewhat larger than other older DSLRs - but I've not seen any reports on the AT Forum about JPG Image Size being a particular concern.

Let us know how your efforts turn out...
