I had been using my Canon EOS 60D without issue for an astrophotography session outdoors (all manual or remote shutter). I brought the camera and scope back inside and decided to use BackyardEOS to complete the process of taking flats. First time using BackyardEOS.
All seemed to go well, although it did seem to get stuck, though I cannot remember any specific error messages.
Next time I came to use my camera, it would not power on. I researched across the web and found this seems to be a common issue, but most suggest replacing the lens, replacing the SD card with a newly formatted card or replacing the battery, none of which worked for me.
Finally I sent it into Canon for their standard fix price of $199. Camera was out of warranty.
I still however wonder if it is something from BackyardEOS that caused the issue, as that was the last work I did with this camera. Maybe a command that the camera doesn't like, or a crash during operation that somehow locks out the camera, or causes internal power issues.
I have also come across other Canon owners that seem to have had similar issues, where the camera will no longer power on after use with BackyardEOS.
Is this a known problem, or something lurking under the surface, or just totally unrelated to BackyardEOS?
