Here is my 10 year movie...

I need to work on the resolution a bit... but you'll get the idea.

Tim that is an awesome animation!! The one shot with the dragon storm is very sharp. Can you post that image on your thread?

That's super! :jump:

Did you use the same camera/scope all 10 years?

Thanks guys.

Actually, these were captured with two different scopes and two different cameras. I started with a 10" SCT and ToUcam, then it was a C14 with the ToUcam, and finally the C14 with a Flea3.

Hey Mitch... here is the image with the Dragon Storm. This is the best image I have of the storm now. I ran into a major problem tonight... my backup drive died. I lost most of my raw data and a good chunk of my high resolution final images. I only have low resolution images of most of my data now. The take home message... burn a hard copy of your raw data immediately.

Very nice chronological sequence of your imaging Tim..!!! :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:

I'd also be interested in a mono version 'cos I know how hard it is to get colours looking the same, especially over a long timespan.

I was afraid that might happen. I was hoping to save you the trouble and then didn't use the right words in my post. Sorry about that.

Tim I love it! Oddly enough I too was going back to my old shots. I only have back to 06 or 07, but you did a great job putting them all together. I've played with using Photoshop's color match feature to get them similar, but it's lots of work!

When you look back at those 10 years, lots of work went into these (and i'm sure, lots of fun too!) Great animation and thanks for posting.

Sincerely,

Alain
