  1. Caveat: I'm in Day 2 into using BYE and obviously still learning Day 1 USB connectivity issues were resolved by switching from directly connecting to the USB 2.0 port on my laptop to using the USB 3.0 port via my card reader/hub (not sure if this is common or just masking some other issue I had with my USB 2.0). Many thanks to Admin and Astroman133 for the guidance yesterday! Day 2 following along with Guylain in the YouTube and successfully adjusting focus and taking test images, however when I set up the download for RAW + JPG it is only downloading the JPG (no RAW files). If I change the settings to RAW (only) it definitely saves the .CR2 files in the BackyardEOS folder. I've attempted to find similar problem description in the forum and I've seen where many have reported exactly the opposite (they only get the RAW when attempting to download both RAW + JPG). I also tried putting a 4 second pause between frames just in case it was a timing issue. To a large extent I dont really care about the JPG's since its the RAW that are what we want to process - this is more of a setup curiosity to determine if I'm doing something wrong or if it is a limitation within the Canon 5DMkIV SDK that limits the downloading to only one or the other but not both?

  2. Hi guys...yes I know the MkII and MkIV are very different cameras...but just to finish this I was looking at every thread related to connectivity and THIS particular thread had the most useful checklist of things to check and Astroman133 was correct...the laptop was NOT recognizing the camera until I restarted that laptop with it attached...then I definitely saw the camera on the list of active devices and connectivity to the BYE was simple and straightforward. as is many times the case, the main culprit is not the software but user error and/or something related to the user's system...I acknowledge that and appreciate the clue/thought provided by Astroman133 earlier in the evening. thanks so much!!! Bill
  3. I'll give the above a try...and will let you know the results! THANKS!!!
  4. Good evening ... I'm a very experienced photographer although a complete newbie relative to BYE and astrophotography in general and trying to transition from wide field astro and begin learning the tools for astro imaging such as BYE I too am having connectivity issues with my Canon 5D Mark IV and I've run thru the 1 - 8 checklist I've just downloaded the latest n greatest BYE v3.1.17 Premium Edition WiFi is disabled No EOS Utility is running Cables and USB are good...based on the live view display the camera thinks its connected to the laptop I have definitely chosen Canon on the SDK (and just for giggles also tried Canon 210 -- this version does not show Canon 215) I made sure the "Ask for camera drivers" box was checked in the Advanced settings 17:20:06 Licensed to photographybywam@gmail.com 17:20:20 Attempting to connect camera... 17:20:20 Canon drivers 'Canon\' initialized. 17:20:20 Camera Not Found! Make sure it's connected to the PC and turned ON Any other thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Cheers! Bill logfile-[20191107-17h20m02s083]-[11368]-2019-11-07.txt
