Just downloaded the trial version a couple of days, and this is my post and need to find a crash course tutorial
Steve's Place says that BYEOS "enables our Canon cameras to be connected directly to the telescope allowing our laptop to image the stars, capture dark frames, assist with focus, enable drift aligning, planetary imaging". For the past 4 months, I've been shooting with just a bridge camera on a camera tripod, but my EOS650D just arrived a few days ago, so this will be totally new for me. I will use it with a 11-16mm, a 60mm and a 150-600mm. I also have a CG2 mount with an Astromaster 130EQ, and iOptron CubePro and SkyTracker are on their way as I type this. I would like to try out the camera + either lens on these 2 new mounts before getting my refractor arrives and doing prime.
What I'd like to know is : Will BYEOS work with only in Prime Focus mode, or can I just use the Canon and a camera lens, or do Eyepiece projection or Afocal as well, on a camera tripod? This is at least just for the sake of the focussing.
