My new camera has an ethernet (RJ-45) connection that can be used to control the camera; I use it as the primary link for EOS utility. Any chance of getting BYE to use ethernet rather than serial? Low priority suggestion, but would be a nice alternative when you need to be further away than serial will allow.
Hi, I'm a developer. I just wrote a proxy-system to allow using ascom mounts connected to other machines. Basically ASCOM-over-ip. It lets you run just the drivers and the small proxy program on the (very small) computer at the mount. So fat it seems to work with MaximDL and TheSkyXPro, the only programs I've tried. I would like to start working on ASCOM cameras next. If BYN/BYE uses ASCOM commands, I would love to play with it. So a few questions 1. Does this sound interesting to anybody? 2. If so, will you ship the driver as a separate install? I can't install BYN/BYE on every machine for the simple reason that I would need some machines without it to make sure it really worked. If this sounds interesting to anyone, let me know. I know and use BYN and would love to be able to get rid of virtually all usb wire clutter and/or long lines going inside during the winter. Just place a stick computer or NUC computer right on the mount or eyepiece table and run everything to it. From there, the equipment is controlled remotely over wi, on computers running the reall programs. No need for larger computers that can support VPN/RAS solutions. Thanks
Hi I believe PixInsight has added INDI Client capabilities to it's suite of functions for camera control. http://indilib.org/ Is this something that has made it onto the BYEOS radar as a future feature? I have been experimenting with power efficient cable free remote operation of my imaging setup recently and have added a Raspberry Pi 2 to my mobile power unit which provides power to my mounts, camera and dew heaters etc. So far I've got my LX200gps fully connected and operating via INDI server running on the Pi 2 connected via WiFi back to my PC running KStars as an INDI client in a VM. I have also managed to get my Canon 60D connected and working for image capture via KStars. It works, but it is buggy and not reliable or solid enough for my liking. Not yet anyway, and I don't think too many people are working to develop KStars at the moment. One things for sure, it's not BYEOS! Not anywhere close to being in the same ball park IMO. It would be great if BYEOS had the ability to connect to a remote camera via the INDI Server/Client platform. Cheers. Pete
