  1. I'll provide my information first just to get that out of the way: Rebel T6i, Dial set to M (checked and double checked), Firmware 1.0 (no firmware updates available) Backuard EOS vs 3.1.8 Windows 10 64 bit Backyard EOS will not set my camera to Bulb. It has no problem with any of the exposure settings 30" or below, but if I start a capture plan with Bulb, it keeps whatever exposure value was selected before the capture plan. For instance, if I used 2" exposure while framing or previewing, then go into Imaging and started a capture plan with Bulb 90" duration, the camera information center shows the Tv 2" exposure and that is what it captures. During the plan the progress center will say downloading after 2 seconds (the camera also responds according to 2" exposure) but it will still count the full 90". The file name also includes Tv2s so it is definitely capturing only 2 second exposures. Now, if I go to EOS utility and set the camera to bulb there is no problem. I can capture just fine. Then, when I close EOS Utility and open Backyard EOS, the camera information center shows BULB and I can capture the full duration. If, however, I change the exposure setting (say for focusing) I cannot go back to bulb. The program will not update the camera setting to bulb. Let me know if you need anymore information from me. Thanks!
  2. I am not sure but this year experienced a lot of cloudy nights and even clear nights changed to cloudy all of a sudden. Generally I make an exposure plan and watch the weather on another window. Once I notice there is a chance of thin clouds think of changing my plan. Is there a way to change the plan without aborting the current plan? Plan change such as changing the total remaining exposure count or exposure time in seconds or ISO settings? Also, is there a way I can execute a command line from the plan such as adding extra delay after a few exposure if exif shows camera temperature is way more than expected or execute something else relevant? Thank you, Ansuman.
  3. Hello - I recently purchased BYEOS CANON and used it last night for the first time. I have watched the tutorials and read the guide. I don't understand something it did last night. My capture program was 10 exposures at 50 seconds ISO 400, then, 10 exposures at 50 seconds ISO 800, then 10 exposures at 50 seconds ISO 1600. 30 total. It went through the program ok, but all the exposures stopped at 32 seconds each. I don't understand that. I used all factory defaults except that I did enable PHd dithering. Can you help me with this please? I should say that it's the first time I have ever used a DSLR and it's a Canon EOS Rebel T1i.
  4. Hi, I'm a new user and using 3.1.6, although the same happened with 3.1.5 I can capture images, but I can only change the exposure time to Bulb in BYE. I have the camera set to M and Exposure simulation is always on for my model. I can manually change the exposure on the camera, which is recognised in BYE, but when I try and change the exposure in BYE, the only option I am given is Bulb. Am I missing something? I am trying to do some planetary and moon photography as I'm just learning at the moment. Thanks
