99 Light Images a Limit??

Question

Hi all,

Question - I did a night of imaging and was using the premium version of Backyard EOS with a Canon 600D using a1800mAh camera battery.. I set it to take 120 images of 90 sec with a 10s delay between.  Went to bed and got up a few hours later and noticed it had shut down taking photos at 99 images.  Camera battery dead it seemed.  I then put a new battery in and did more imaging of another target with same number of images as for the first.  Went to bed again and came out later and again the camera battery was dead but again it took 99 images.  Maybe a dumb questions but Is that simply luck both batteries died after 99 images, or is there possibly a limit of 99 images per imaging line in Backyard EOS?  Anyone shoot more than 99 images??  Cheers JIM

The Battery being Dead in the AM is likely the result of only so much Power-On Capacity.  The number of Images is likely an indirect result of the Laptop's Power Timing settings for Shutdown of the USB Port or to Go to Sleep.  You'll need to create an "Astro" Profile for your Power Settings - start via Windows Settings / Power and follow the Advanced Settings into the old Control Panel interface.

With BYE 3.2.2 and my T5i I was able to shoot 120 1 second exposures with a 10 second pause. The battery still shows full charge.

As a programmer, I would say that if you can set the number of exposures to 999 then it should try to take all 999 images rather than just stopping at 99.
