  1. Hi Pete, It's taken me a month but based on your message below I used VirtualHere to help drive my remote observatory using BYE. At the observatory I use VirtualHere server on Lubuntu and at home BYE running on Windows XP virtual machine. I do have a slight issue with download times. Like you this is not critical normally but for dawn/dusk Flats based on exposing the sky through a T-shirt filter I find 30 Flats can take 2-3minutes to complete. The light levels do change enough in that time to mean an adjustment in exposure to retain same light levels. I'm still unsure of the final ef
  2. I think Giovanni's original question about file naming is still open and I have same question. It seems the BYEOS File name when taking flats using BYEOS Shutter set to AV-FLAT with the Camera set on AV always defaults to "1s" no matter what the actual shutter speed. Example : Camera set to AV, shutter speed determined as 1/40 by camera, filename given using my filename settings as: Object_FLAT_1s_200iso_Temp_Date_time And for comparison , when I then take a set of Dark Flats with manual setting to ensure the exposure is 1/40s, the filename changes to:- Object_DARK_FLAT_TV
  3. hello forum, I'm running BYE happily for a couple of weeks now and found I sometimes get below system error reported while imaging multi exposures with a D60 on Windows XP. This error then appears in the log resuting in no CR2 file being saved except in the Backyardtemp/Download director as original named file. Specified argument was out of the range of valid values. Parameter name: ProcessCapture().FileNames.Count == 0 Since the images are being saved I'm assuming its linked to background worker. I notice the last image in the session is saved correctly and log reports a sucess!
