  1. I have installed in the same Skywatcher AZ-EQ5 PRO mount a 6 "f / 9 RC GSO telescope and a 90mm f / 5 Refractor in parallel. Each has a different Canon camera mounted (550D and 1100D both refrigerated) that shoot at the same time and cover different amplitude fields (different focal lengths). Obviously on both cameras, execute the same number of shots, during the same time and at the same time. Having them synchronized interests me to facilitate the operation and execute the Dithering. The option of using two different ISOS is necessary to be able to adjust the sensitivity of the camera to the field they cover (since the exposure time must necessarily be the same) you cannot use the same parameters with two different telescopes, with diameters and focal lengths different ... I don't know if I explain. Attached link to a view of my installation. MY TEAM - Deep Space
  2. When shooting with two cameras at the same time, they are mounted on two different telescopes (usually). It is normal that the acquisition plan is the same in the two Master / Slave cameras but the option to change the ISO (in the slave camera) is important and desirable since, for example; the performance of a GSO RC 6 " f/ 9 and a Refractor 90mm f / 5 is very different and the way to optimize light shots is to play with the ISO of this second camera. Currently I solve this issue (somewhat handmade) by starting the two cameras independently, the same number of shots and times but different ISO and launched the shots of the two cameras at the same time; the result is good, two simultaneous sets of lights, Wide Field and Narrow Field but with compensated lighting. I sincerely recommend that you study the proposed option of being able to select a different ISO in Master-Slave. Regards.
  3. Hi, thank you for you answer. I think it would be an option to consider since normally when two cameras are mounted it is in different equipment and with different characteristics. It is normal that the acquisition plan is the same in the two Master / Slave cameras but the option to change the ISO (in the slave camera) is important since the response of a GSO RC 6 "and a Refractor 90mm f / 5 is very different and the way to optimize the shot is to play with the ISO of this second camera.

  4. Hello: I have two telescopes mounted in parallel with a Canon in each one, I use the Dual Camera option and it works perfectly but I would be interested in being able to change the ISO in the second camera, that is to say the same acquisition plan but with two different Isos, from At the moment I have not managed to get it to work, is this option possible?

    TWO CAMERAS

    Hello: Thank you, I understand that I will take it into account.

    TWO CAMERAS

    Hi: Thank you, I'm glad to know that; If in general this will be the case, the two cameras will work synchronized on the same field, with the same number of shots and exposure time.

    TWO CAMERAS

    Hi. Thanks for the answers. As I say the assembly is a single mount AZ-EQ5 GT supporting a RC 6 "+ Refractor 90mm f / 5.5 and two Canon cameras working at the same time, one in narrow field and the other in wide field. What I see most complicated is the control of Dither with PHD2 in a single mount.

    TWO CAMERAS

    Hi: I intend to mount a second Canon camera in my configuration, there are two telescopes in parallel, a 6 "RC (narrow field) and a Refractor 90mm f / 5.5. (Wide field) My question is: I can control the motorized focus of the two telescopes (different models) well. The exposure times, which may be (or not) different for each camera, as well as the Dither in the mount with PHD2. will there be conflicts? Thank you.
  9. Hello: The problem is solved and good for BackyardEOS. It is a fault of my camera that lets in some parasitic light and that I have the viewer well covered, problem in long exposures. I have made the tests in my workshop with a normal general illumination> low, not in a real situation of a dark environment. The reason why with BackyardEOS I detected this problem when comparing with EosUtility because for a lamentable accumulation of circumstances, the position of the camera was not the same in the two situations, in one had more external light than in the other ... result parasitic lights in one case and not the other ... I have learned something. I put on the track of the problem that when repeating the tests the parasitic lighting was not the same if performed with daylight or with artificial lighting, result, repeating the tests in a controlled and dark environment there are no parasitic illuminations even with 300 seconds of exposure to 1600 ISO. In short, BackyarEOS works perfectly for me (I'll buy a license), even activating the mirroring virtual system that works perfectly, which allows me to mark and use the Mirror Lock (I have it 3 seconds late). Thanks for your attention. Greetings.
  10. Hello: This second sample is taken with the same conditions 180 seconds ISO 800 by EosUtility and the problem of lighting does not appear.
  11. Hello: Thanks for your prompt response. I will try to explain myself, my English is not good at all. When I use my camera in long exposures> 180 seconds, with EOS-UTILITY I have no problem with amp.glow as it is an overlighting on the right side of the sensor, with the Astro Photography Tool - APT software either, always in the same conditions. In the tests with BackarEOS, in the same conditions, if that overlighting appears in the right area of the sensor, I have disabled the option in Advanced Configuration + Virtual Mirror Lock and the check box Mirror Lock is not set by default is to 0. I will attach a sample. Thanks and regards.
  12. Hi, I have the evaluation version and I generally like it for my Modified CANON 1100D. But I have a problem, when using BackYardEOS an amp-glow is generated that does not appear when I use another application, it is related to the theme of the mirror parking, but I do not have this option activated and the virtual mirror does not ... no I understand why this failure seems to me. Thank you.
