    BYE in offline mode

    The internet connection is required ONLY for the Trial license. A permanent purchased Classic or Premium license does not need to verify the license with the O'Telescope servers at startup.

    Live Autofocus

    Thanks for your help, the problem is resolved. I found that reducing the brightness of the LCD screen made the stars much easier to see in the F&F mode.

    Live Autofocus

    Yes, you must have LiveView enabled in the camera for Frame & Focus to work. If you put the lens in MF mode and manually run it through the full focus range do you see the star at some point? The correct focus point should be at infinity. LiveView exposures are very short and the camera's autofocus circuitry is unlikely to work when the image is mostly black or nearly so. Even a bright star will be just a dim dot.

    Live Autofocus

    Some of the newer cameras have "smart" LiveView autofocus modes that are not compatible with the Canon SDK and BYE. Unfortunately the Face+Tracking mode is one of those modes and is the default. Use the camera's menu to choose the various modes to see if one of them will allow LiveView to work with BYE.

  5. In general they include 1) changes to the list of supported cameras, 2) bug fixes, 3) new features, 4) performance improvements. The upgrade is free! The following were copied and pasted from the author-created release notes for the releases of BYE newer than 3.1.16. They are also viewable from the Downloads pages elsewhere on this site. What's New in Version 2019-02-22 (3.1.17) Released March 18, 2020 CHANGE: Canon SDK 3.9.10 update CHANGE: DCRaw update CHANGE: Splash screen performance start-up. CHANGE: Removed limit of 1000 loops in imaging mode. C

    Planetary mode confusion

    @kostaspap92It seems that you have some confusion about the meaning of 1:1 Pixel Resolution (and also what Video Mode does on a High Resolution Sensor such as your D5600). The reference to 1:1 Pixel Resolution means that every Single Pixel in the Output Video results from a Single Pixel on the Sensor. This is important when you need to capture the Finest Details - such as Planetary Video Imaging. On the other hand, Modern DSLRs with Multi-Megapixel Sensors (6000x4000 for your D5600) store the contents of the entire Sensor in an FullHD Video (1920x1080 pixels). This means that the d

    Canon EOA Ra to BYE

    PLEASE tell us which version of BYE you are running. You need to have 3.2.2 for the EOS Ra. Have you disabled WiFi in the camera and connected it to the PC with a short USB cable that is known to work? Also you need to prevent the Canon EOS Utility from automatically connecting to the camera when you first power it on.

  8. In answer to ADMIN's question: I have connected the RP camera with Canon's EOS Utility (latest EU update from the Canon web site), running under the latest Windows 10 for my Lenovo tablet/laptop. The 5X and 10X LiveView magnifications do work, and can be invoked from EOS Utility.

  9. Hey there Goldwater 58, just a couple other things that may be of help. I too have a Canon T-3 Rebel similar to yours. I have found that when trying to shoot DSO that a solid polar alignment is critical, whether using a guide scope or just going with guts poker alignment its really pretty important. One of the great things about BYE is that under "Frame & Focus" you can lock onto a star for focus, but it will also let you know how well your polar alignment is. If the star drifts greatly while trying to focus then your alignment is in question and may need to take another shot at it. The ot
