  5. It's not pausing as such just i had more frames at the moment Steve Cheers Steve James
  6. Asteroid Dyson.. Strange evening i was expecting to be out amongst the stars but alas the clouds rolled in. Just before checking outside i had my mouse button ready too free up some room on my H/D and was waving it over my Naff M31 images/Folder but thought Mmm if it's crud outside i will reprocess these images for something to do and left em. Well coming back in from the Drizzle outside i went about processing the M31 frames, stuck em in Registax and let it go off processing, a quick trip too the kitchen for a Brew i come back in and look how Registax is going on. Bang noticed whilst Registax was running it's alignment a white Dot moving close by M31 :shock: What is that i asked myself ... After some processing with Image Ready i got an animation going, first one was a quick one missing out some frames as i was keen to see what was going on. After the Process was done iam left thinking Asteroid and after checking all possibilities it has to be no other explanation. Ive now included ALL frames for the Animation, as i said in an earlier post i went about imaging M31 [removed word] nilly and stopped and started imaging M31 as conditions were poor and i was tired hence the jump in movements in the Animation... Pleased as punch and will be submitting it to the relevant governors on such things for further investigation.. Hope you enjoy, Ive kept it as small a file as poss and is now only just over 1MB with all frames inc.. http://stargazerslounge.co.uk/uploads/JDASTEROID2.gif Regards James

  20. Bummer. None of the MPC candidates come close to your path. Maybe you discovered one? Can you find it again? If so, you may want to check with someone locally that knows asteroids and colaborate on a submittal.. It's down to clear skies now, i will find it again (A mission too). Going to contact some Proffesors at Manchester Uni and have them colaobrate with me if info collates a Submittal will be on the cards. Nope speeds even at extreme high orbits for Satellites wouldn't produce this WH as far as iam aware... Checked out everything i can Online and in Softwares/Charts nothing comes close to saying ah yes thats what it was, maybe someone else will turn up with an answer but iam pretty certain on this(So far).. Thanks for the Help and Comments thus Far chaps
