Canon Ra and long exposures

Question

Hi,

This past Saturday I took images of the comet using BYE. I am using a Canon Ra. I set my camera on "M" and in BYE to the "BULB" exposure length. I inputted a time of 60 seconds... but the program would either take a 7 second exposure... or it would hang and I would need to restart the program. I gave up on figuring it out ii the field..and stuck to 30 second exposures. 

Can you suggest would I can do to be absolutely certain everything is working properly?

With the 30 second exposures... I got this:

Adam,

Very nice image!

Canon in their wisdom has provided another astrophotography camera that has separate shooting modes for Manual and Bulb shooting. This requires you to be physically at the camera to switch between Tv and Bulb imaging.

Also you need to download BYE 3.2.0 RC6 or later which has a fix to register that the camera has the separate modes. Go to the Downloads page and look in the pre-release area to get the RC.

As suggested above please download the latest 3.2.0.RC6 release from the download pre-release section.

If it happens again send me that logfile. If a BULB image ends prematurely it is usually triggered by a camera event, the log file should shed some light on that.

Regards,
