Last night I made a video of Y1 comet and was surprised to see it disintegrating. It happened at 9:43pm EST starting on frame #22.
Here are 20 frames (frames 10-41) out of 75 frames. Used my python script in Sharpcap V2.9 to capture frames and Virtual dub to make video.
Video was zoomed 4X, deshaked, flipped, and cropped.
Equipment was; 6SE mount, 750mm F6 C5, .5FR, LN300, Sharpcap, VirtualDub.
Was forced to use .5FR because Sharpcap couldn't find enough stars to stack. Camera was set to one second exposures (longest exposure I can do in a red zone). Script was set to stack for 60 seconds for each frame capture. Ran if for 75 minutes. Required using deshake in Virtualdub due to 6SE mount.
