    When will you support the Nikon D850?
  2. Thanks, everyone, your suggestions were very helpful. A new problem has emerged. I Reset my camera as suggested. All the shutter speeds now work with BYN 2.0. However, here is another problem. Sometimes I mount my camera on the telescope with its own lense. Connection works fine as before. I go into frame and focus and focus the subject (In this case, it's the block wall in my backyard.) When I go to capture the image, the camera refocuses leaving the target subject completely out of focus. Near-field subjects are brought completely into focus (rather than the target), which suggests that BYN is leaving it to the camera to determine the best focus point. logfile-[20171108-15h33m57s503]-[5868]-2017-11-08.txt
  3. Hello, I’m looking into purchasing your software. I’m using a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 / 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 ram. I’m using Parallels 13 and have installed windows 10. My camera is a Nikon 7100. I’ve set it to manual (M) and the viewfinder presents “PC” suggesting that the camera is communicating with my computer. BackyardNikon connects to my camera and I am able to obtain a live view to frame and focus. When I try to capture, the shutter speed doesn’t change to reflect my settings in the software. Bulb doesn’t work at all. When I do use Bulb, I get about a 30 mSec abort message. On a couple of occasions, the software seemed to lock up ~ however, the spinner in the upper righthand corner continued to function. After a while I closed the application and restarted it. I’ve included all my log files in an enclosed zip file. I also tried contacting the sales folks using the web form and uploading the zip file. Thanks for any assistance you can offer. Best Regards, Dave Logs.zip
