compared BYN and BYE

Ian W and I sat down in the GBO Warm Room, which was nice and cool, to do a side-by-side comparison of Backyard Nikon and EOS. We connected our DSLRs.

feature Nikon Canon notes

camera during test D7100 40D
software version tested   1.0.0 3.0.3 Yet to update my version.

main screen
dithering button name Dither PHD Simply a renamed feature?
battery level percent bars Constrained by the camera?
sensor temperature no yes

frame and focus
lens focus control no yes BYN has ASCOM Focuser.
live view 5x zoom no yes

white balance no yes Nikon has auto.
white balance temp no yes
Save To yes no

live view maximum sensitivity aperture
save planetary jpg no yes

Overall, very similar. And, to me, that was impressive and good. Along the way, I helped Ian configure his BYN Weather Center for Collingwood.

I will craft a more formal report soon...


Forgot to take screen snaps at the time.

Ian sent over a shot from the BYN main screen.

I grabbed the BYE main interface.
