I wish I had been a bit more on the ball and had thought about doing an animation, but I only have four frames and one is a bit out of step.

Timewise it's correct, but I didn't change orientation. This is straight from the videos, no flipping or rotating.

I think we have all been there, Steve. When you miss these opportunities, you adapt your capture routine to be ready. The first time I missed a double transit in good seeing, I started looking ahead for those opportunities. And, unless something is haywire with the equipment, you can capture at a regular interval to make a nice animation (if you get a 3 or 4 hour run of data in your session.) Shooting monochrome, sometimes all I got was a few nice IR images and a decent animation in IR. While the R might be ok, the G & B would be garbage. No decent color image.
I think you did a marvelous job on the animation. I can see why you wish you had more data. Thanks for sharing.

That's really nice, what software did you use to make the animation?
Shawn, I used CS2 to make the animated GIF.
