I was blessed by energetic action on the limb and good seeing, late in the day on Sep 17th. The clip starts at 16:35 PST and depicts 75 minutes at roughly 3 frames/min.

You may notice some apparent rotation, which was not compensated. A setting sun required intermittent exposure adjustment.

 

A cropped animation frame before downsizing. I wish I could post animations this big.

Nice animation.
If you consider that you made it with a mobile phone, I would say that it is excellent. waytogo.gif

Very good, particularly using a phone!  Some nice surge prom activity.  You can post larger by utilizing either Flickr or Astrobin and copying the link.  Neither are free if you want unlimited storage capability but both are very useful.

That is some very nice images and animation.  

 

Phones are amazing tools.
