I believe this is the same prom complex that I imaged on the 9th as well but it has grown in structure. Gentle movement, and had to play with levels for the background as this was shot through some high clouds which can play havoc with an animation, making it flicker like crazy. This didn't turn out too bad considering. This represents 30 minutes in real time. Lunt LS60T SS, Skyris 236M and iOptron CEM25P. 300 frames captured every 60 seconds, aligned and stacked in AS!3, LR Deconvolution in Imppg, GIF and adjustments to BG in PS CC.

i watched this visually for a solid hour this afternoon,  it was amazingly bright and had a super delicate foam above it.  You can just make out that extra cottony whisp  hovering above it.   glad somebody else saw it too!

 

you should boost your levels on this video to make it brighter!!!  I would repost the video myself, but its against TOS to reproduce other peoples images here.

Thanks all!  It is such a balancing act on brightness levels as I don’t want to bring out too much noise and possibly lose some details by blowing parts out.  Also different monitors display images differently so always trying to find a nice medium!  Thanks for the input as it is good to know how these come out on a variety of systems.
