Quote:I suggest mac owners should use Parallels 8 to run BYE and save Guylain a lot of programming hours. BYE runs without a glitch on my Mac Book Pro. Guylain should allocate those hours to improve the existing software as well as to speed up the development on BackyarNIK and BackyardCCD.
Quote:Well... BackyardEOS is a .net application so a native Mac version is not for tomorrow. I did purchase a Mac Mini last year so I might try run it on MONO eventually and see what happens. One thing is for sure is that if I ever get down to it some features will never work on Mac, like the ASCOM compliant plug-ins; this is only for Windows Thank you for your support and interest,Guylain
Quote:Not sure what you mean, many software companies have MAC apps that use ASCOM.

Quote:I don't know what Guylain's staff is, but the bottom line is he (and his staff) are amongst the MOST responsive developers I have ever seen.Not only does he so software, but he is an Astro-hobbiest (Astronomer) also. My compliments to him!I have posted a question on the yahoo group at midnight, and have had responses within a half-hour.Major kudos to Guylain.....I look forward to seeing BYNiK and BYCCD!Andy
