Hello, I am using BYN 1.0.5 with a Nikon D800e on windows 10. When I try running BYN I can connect to the camera fine, but when I try to use frame and focus the program crashes. When I try to restart It gets as far as loading the UI then stops again. At that point I need to reboot the PC. I did notice a background worker task still running after it crashes when trying to use live view. I ended that task, but I still need to reboot again to run BYN. I attached the log file for when BYN stops when trying to use frame and focus. Has anyone seen this behavior before? Any Ideas? Cheers! Mike logfile-20160505-22h54m19s651-6724-2016-05-05.txt
While performing some Planetary Imaging of Jupiter earlier this week, I had occasion to start using the new "True" LiveView Pause in both Frame&Focus and Planetary. I run with "Max Sensitivity" - for the obvious reasons. But, while working with Jupiter, it is Bright Enough that I need only 1/40sec at 400ISO. So, I set both Frame&Focus and Planetary Exposure Plans to that setting. Then, I found that whenever I used Pause (to save on LiveView Sensor Heating - it was 45*F Ambient instead of the 0*F that some of you are fighting), when I "Un-Paused" the Exposure Plan would immediately return to 2sec at 6400ISO (Max Sensitivity for my 60D). After about the 3rd round of resetting both the Exposure and ISO, this became OLD. I can understand asserting Max Sensitivity settings when one changes Mode into either of these LiveView modes (or at least when switching into Frame&Focus), but this Pause behavior is essentially becoming a "Pause Penalty" for anyone who is concerned to use this Pause Feature in order to reduce LiveView-generated Thermal Noise... Can this be fixed ?? Or is there an unobvious reason this Action must be ??
Even though there are the Large "Play" / "Pause" buttons in the lower-right during the LiveView-enabled Modes, the actual LiveView status is confusing if you don't have enough Motion/Noise in the Image Display to actually confirm whether the DSLR Sensor is "Active" or "Paused" (and hence "Cooling" or "Building-up Heat"). When an AVI is being Captured, the Progress Wheel is displayed (although it states "Busy" in a confusing manner for Planetary Capture), but at other times in these Modes it is dimmed/unused. Posting the actual LiveView Status to the Progress Center would be an unmistakable (and unmissable) indicator. (The "highlight" on the Play/Pause button is especially hard to confirm when one has Rubylith over the Laptop Screen. I unfortunately learned this the hard way while thinking that I was "Cooling" the LiveView Sensor in between AVI Captures of the recent Jovian Triple Transit of 1/24. I got some rather "Warm" AVI Captures towards the middle of this multi-hour Event...)
