Quote:Are you going to use a mono camera on one AT65EDQ and a color camera on the other while shooting the same targets? I love my AT65EDQ. Just bought a Canon 6D. Want to see how the scope works with the full frame sensor.
Quote:Way to go Guylain, strike while the iron`s hot Congrats! on the new gear..
Quote:Well, Guylain, you just need to sell more copies of Backyard EOS. Everybody, buy it! Hehehe... Does BackyardEOS support two cameras at once, or will you have to have two laptops?I've often thought how cool it would be to have a mega imaging array - 9 identical scopes, pointed the same direction, with 9 identical cameras attached, in a huge 3x3 rig, on a sturdy mount - just think, you could get over a day's worth of light frame data in under 3 hours!
Quote:BackyardEOS 2.1 will support more than one camera on the same laptop.
Quote:BYE with multi camera support will be amazing. I've been thinking about picking up another 450D to do piggy back at the same time as prime imaging. Wonder how dithering is going to work if you were doing 2 different exposure lengths on one mount.

Quote:In 2.1 you will be able to start 2 instances of BYE and when more than one camera is connected you'll be able to select which one you want.I opted for 2 instances (or more if you have x + 1 cameras) for simplicity but most of all for stability.I do plan to have a _synch_ feature in the future but that won't be for 2.1 My plan is to have a way to identify a MASTER instance of BYE and one or more slave instances connected to other cameras. The master instance will trigger start/end sequence and will also be responsible for dithering while the slaves will simply wait for commands from the MASTER instance. Does this make sense?Guylain

Quote:Guylain,When I read the title I couldn't help but laugh out loud. That's typically what a man would say when his wife gives him the green light to marry a second wife (just because our religion allows polygamy, doesn't mean you can get away with it, you've first got to survive a few flying dishes and maybe the odd glass or two).Then again, with the amount of time I spend with my observatory I suspect she thinks I have a woman tucked away somewhere up there out of site.
