Hi all! Last night i went out to a friend's place on the outskirts of the city to image jupiter with my 8 incher and my DSLR. Atmospheric conditions were average-ish, just enough to push the scope to F20. I used backyardEOS in planetary mode to control the camera and captured jupiter 2 times about 45 minutes apart with 1700 Frame videos. In one of the images the great red spot is visible and in the other it's not. Please give me your honest feedback and advice, Clear skies!
Hi Just tried out my new (to me) Canon 6D Mk1 at Galloway Star Party and discovered that my Windows 7, 64bit laptop doesn't see the camera when I try to connect it by USB, so I can't control it with BackyardEOS. I've checked the device manager and it just doesn't come up when connected and switched on plus I've tried different USB ports. However, I don't have the same problem when I do the same with my Canon EOS 450D using the same cable with the same laptop. Am I missing something important here? Pretty frustrating given it's the first time I've been out under a sky that good in a long time Thanks in advance, Tom
I want to shoot an hour or so of moon footage using my Canon 1100D. I've got the camera hooked up to BackyardEOS, but I can only seem to get it to shoot video once I have told BackyardEOS how many frames I want. Does anyone know how to get backyardEOS just to continuously shoot video until I tell it to stop? (ideally, so I get 1 single video file)? TIA
