    Please read the orange banner at the top of this page and provide the requested information. There are multiple Mark IV models and multiple versions of BYE 3.1. It would also help to have the exact error message. Either type it in or provide a screenshot. Thanks!

    This is a very respectable Frame Rate for a Dedicated Planetary Astro Camera. It is a GREAT Frame Rate for a Tethered DSLR (and is likely limited by the Camera's USB2 Port ). It is definitely more than enough for Planetary Imaging. Even for the Speedily-Rotating Jupiter, it is usual to be able to Stack 5 minute Videos without needing to worry about Derotation - and 5 min would give you 10K Frames to Stack. Seeing Conditions and Equipment / Resolution will likely be bigger Factors...

    IT is not BYN that controls the frame rate, it is the camera. The way LV works is that the camera makes a LV frame available one after the other, as fast as it can. BYN listen to the image ready event and download it as soon as one is available. Some camera will provide more frames that other in the span of 1 second, yours seems to give a lot at 90+. Most are < 20 to 30 FPS. Adjusting the shutter will not alter the frame rate. In LV those settings are applied as a digital/brightness adjustment to the image.

    BYN does not use the camera's movie mode, so the camera's movie frame rate is not applicable to BYN. BYN's frame rate is the rate at which it downloads LiveView images. This has to do with the speed of the USB connection and your PC. The ISO and Shutter settings do not affect the frame rate only the brightness of the frames. This is how the camera is designed to work and BYN cannot change that.

    EOS Ra won't save TIFF

    LibRaw - the apparent successor to DCRaw - has support for CR3 (and conversion CR3-TIFF) in the version still in Beta. (DSS is also waiting for that LibRAW to release from Beta...) However, for AP Imaging purposes, TIFF is not a "Good Thing" as it cannot readily be Calibrated with Darks and Flats. The recommended solution is to Convert from CR3 to DNG (which is still RAW non-Debayered data), and then feed that to DSS or PixInsight or whichever Program is next in your workflow.
