Screenshot from tonight’s session.
BackyardEOS is the program that controls the camera settings and acquisition. The screenshot tells me that I am shooting in bulb mode at ISO800. I am 52 seconds into a 300 second exposure. External temp is 6.5c, camera chip temp is 16c. There is 70% humidity and optics are above the atmospheric dew point of 1.5c.
This is the 5th of 12 exposures that I have programmed and are currently being executed.
The graph on the right shows that I have “stretched” the light histogram data upwards and to the left to better see the faint RAW image obtained from the camera.
