May I suggest to contact user escho and ask him how to make best use of ML for Astro photography?
English is not his first language and you may need deepl.com for assistance.
Be prepared for a steep learning curve. ;-)

Here are some incomplete notes about intervalometer: https://wiki.magiclantern.fm/camera_help#intervalometer
ā€¯Shoot like crazy" is what you may want but turning it off may be tricky. It's called crazy for a reason...
Power off should work, though.

Things to investigate:
- Anti-virus/internet protection software
- Graphics driver. If you have an onboard video port you may want to disable/remove your graphic card for a test.

If going Lexar 1066x: Take care, there are 2 versions: https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=24461.msg220607#msg220607

My KB card went dead some years ago and got replaced. No problems since. Same with my 2 Transcends.

General Help Q&A / Re: No Option to Change Bitrate
« on: February 17, 2020, 08:21:33 PM »
Bitrate manipulation in RAW/MLV recording makes no sense. It is an option for H.264 only (if feature available for your cam (not for 5D3!) -> see feature matrix -> NITRATE).

General Chat / Q: Flash cards and power consumption/thermal management?
« on: February 17, 2020, 05:16:18 PM »
Hello!

Is there any hard data (aka: measurements) covering power consumption/thermal management for various flash devices (SD-card, micro-SD, CFexpress; SLC, MLC, eMLC) performing write operations?

EDIT: MLC includes TLC, QLC.

Nope, not even close.
In short: Fps override works fine for undercranking.
And required bandwidth would exceed Cam's limit by far, enabling just a few seconds recording before buffer overflow.
Cam is good for 720p24 in uncompressed 14 bit when used with nightly builds. Experimental builds offer compression

Sorry, your description lacks detail.

If you want to use an official nightly build you have to downgrade to 2.0.3 first (as described in intallation instructions). If you want to use firmware 2.0.6 you have to use dfort's custom build https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/downloads/
If there are errors you may have to add some details:
Full error description, maybe screenshots, name of build used... Be precise!

Sorry: I should have said what the card is - I'll add it my original post. It's a 32GB Extreme Pro, straight from Amazon. So it should be the safest card in the world, based on my reading of forum posts.

Don't trust anyone in flash business!
Have you tested the card for capacity fraud with h2testw (Windows) or F3/F3X (Linux, macOS)? And have you tested for speed fraud by benchmark runs using a decent cardreader and tools like CrystalDiskMark (Windows) or BlackMagic Disk Speed Test (macOS)?

You don't have to have a fully charged battery for the autoexec.bin test. You're not doing an installation ...

12
To verify if card is bootable and detected as such:
Rename Autoexec.bin to *.bak. If your cam gets stuck (black screen, not responsive) the card is bootable. Remove battery, rename autoexec.bak to .bin and lets find out what is actually going on with your card as Danne suggested.

13
To me it looks like the card isn't recognized as a bootable card.
2 options:
- Backup ROM0.BIN and ROM1.BIN and prepare card with EOScard/MacBoot utility. Wipe card contents and copy extracted build content to card. Retry.
- Use a smaller card (32 GB or less). Format card in cam, copy extracted build content to cad and redo installation.

Tell us what is the difference between the CANON EOS M and the Canon 650D, which affects the quality of RAW shooting.
Depends on what build you are using.
Short: Nightly EOS M does "mv720". 650D (like most other cams) does "mv1080".
And Danne's builds for EOS M are not available for 650D.

And is the CAanon 650D camera really so noisy? Or am I just taking pictures the wrong way? where can I post an example?
You need a file hoster. Link footage here. And add some notes about settings used and postprocessing. Without that information linking is futile.

And about posting your issues: Maybe add text in your native language beside your translation.

Only one public pic visible. Second "not found".
Have you tried to disable the crop setting from the menu and pressing loupe/magnify button in liveview instead?

Backup diagnostic autoexec.bin. Copy extracted nightly build content to card.
Remove battery.
Insert card.

@procopy: Make sure card isn't write protected. If there is a smaller card you may want to use this one. Or create a smaller partition.

He should really do this test with his 24-70 after verifying its focus distance feature.

@Mod: Please move procopy's post to the Camera Emergency department.

Copy diagnostic autoexec.bin to card. Backup existing autoexec.bin first.

24-70 L should do fine. Let your friend check one of his pics withJeffrey Friedl's Exif Viewer.
