Can you still get a 30 day trial of this software?
If so how is this obtained?
You bet. Go to http://www.backyardeos.com/ and click on trial.
If this fails send me a direct email at backyardEOS@yahoo.com and I'll send you a key just the same.
Thank you for your support and interest.

I have tried BackYard Red and was wondering how to get it to work with a dual monitor? Right now the main is BYR and I just keep BYE maximized on the other for light control.

BackyardRED does not yet support dual monitors. But I'm working on it. You found a nice workaround in the meantime

In the next release 2.1.x mirror lockup will be supported natively with only the usb cable for DIGIC IV cameras. I'm aiming sometime in April for the 2.1 release.
Hope this helps,

I used version 2 for the 1st time last night and thought it was great. I really like the large display of exposure time, etc. Makes it much easier to see. I also like being able to click on a image to enlarge it for inspection.
Great job on a wonderful software package!

I also like being able to click on a image to enlarge it for inspection.
Then you'll be very impressed with the release of 2.1 in a few months It will show immediate enlargement and localized image statistics, including histogram, just by pointing the mouse
Thank you for your support and interest,

I have a bug in the current 2.0.2 release where the battery level change event is ignored if it fires during a bulb exposure. This is why the UI is never updated . I will fix it in the 2.1 release.
I noticed this, but talk about a minor detail when compared to the benefits of this program.
I can't wait for...
you already know

Planetary crash creating the AVI file is fixed.
The AVI file size limit of 2 GIG is no longer an issue. A planetary recording
will result in a single AVI file regardless of its size.
Do not be alarmed if it takes a few minutes for the AVI to show up in your
download folder. Here's the reason why…
Once a planetary recording is complete BackyardEOS will convert the AVI to
ensure it can be read by Registax (or other processing tool) without requiring
any additional conversion. You will note a notification icon appearing in
Windows notification area in the lower right corner of your screen; if you click
on the notification icon you will witness the conversion progress. This process
will queue the conversions should you start another planetary recording before
the first is completely converted to ensure your computer does not suffer from
The conversion is optional and a setting "AVI conversion" is available in the
Setting window for those who do not need or want BackyardEOS to convert the AVI
for you. If you choose not to have BackyardEOS convert the file for you on the
fly you can always convert it at a later time using VirtualDub.
Thank you for your help and patience.

if I get a cable to hookup PHD Guiding to my mount via a usb port can I use BackyardEOS to track while taking images without a guide scope.
Posted 15 November 2012 - 08:54 PM
BYE does not do guiding, it does dithering.
This said you can't guide and image with the same camera. This is not possible with DSLRs.
You need a separate guide camera and either a guide scope or an off-axis guider hooked up to PHD. Once you have proper guiding then, and only then, can BYE do its magic and dither between each images.
Does this make sense?
Posted 16 November 2012 - 09:02 AM
Yes it does make sense. I was confused between dithering and guiding. thanks for the clairification. maybe a glossary of terms would help for us newbe's.

You trial key was sent July 20th. I remember the email exchange we had that day too.
If you're requesting another trial via the web site I won't get the trial request as you're already had a trial key, your subsequent request are swallowed by the spam control I have on the site.
Please send me a PM if you need 1:1 assistance.
