It was cloudy & windy at start so, I captured it unguided.
Wish I have a wider lens for a better crop.

Great video!  

 

Can you post a version of the video that runs more slowly?  I.e., that lasts about four to ten times longer, even if it's jerkier?

 

The fast motion seems illusionary, especially as the video is capturing *four* hours of motion.  It would be better to see it moving very slowly, but steadily, past the stars, across the sky.

 

In any case, it is truly a spectacular movie of the comet passing by the Pleiades!

Last night was the first night that we have had a clear sky in about two weeks, I was wondering if I was ever going to get a chance to see the comet. After church, I used my 20 x 80's and since it was so close to the Pleiades, I found a small smudge. I was wondering if I was looking at a distant nebula or something, because it was so faint with the neighborhood lights and the brightening moon. I will check again tonight and see if it has moved, and I will know I was looking at the comet. But as the moon gets brighter, I may not be able to see it at all tonight?

Yeah! I feel that too. It was looping when I look on my PC but on web, it’s end so fast.
Thank you, try to improve this.

When in YouTube - Select the gear icon. There you can set the speed; down to 1/4.

I already tried that.  On the iPad, the gear only offers choice of quality, not speed!

That's wonderful. I've shared it with friends and family on Facebook. It gives a very good impression of the brightness/dimness and the apparent speed of the object.
