A short time-lapse of the comet C/2014 Q2 travelling through a patch of London sky on 10th January 2014. The five second clip shows just under an hour of real time movement. - 82 x 20 second exposures at 3200 ISO (one shot every 40 seconds). Playback is at 15 frames per second. Sorry about the gif quality, I don't know if it's possible to show higher quality video here :)

Nice one. You clearly got better skies than in here in Groningen. I managed no more than 10 40 second frames

Yes we were lucky with the weather that night but it was very windy so the scope was moving quite a bit which meant I had to delete about two thirds of what I shot. Fortunately I was able to get 82 reasonably stable shots in a row. I hope you get some clear sky in Groningen soon  :smiley:

Thanks, but the forecast is bleak :(

I like that a lot :) Did you use a LP filter?

Cheers

Will

Hi Will, yes I did use a LP filter ( unfortunately necessary in London). They are helpful but they do cut out a lot of light which may explain why I haven't yet managed to resolve the comet's tail in the stacked images.

      Hi all, 
      Is it still possible to see comet Neowise with the naked eye? (I’ve tried but cannot see it)
      and is it still possible to view with a telescope?
      thanks

      Anybody know of a piece of software that could detect the change the occurred in an image? I'm doing a project to see if I can find an asteroid or comet without any prior knowledge of where said asteroid/comet is.
      I'm not really sure where to look for something like this, so any help would be appreciated.
      Also, I would like something that could run on Mac. But I'll run it on bootcamp if there is no other options.
      Thanks.

      Just a reminder for you Shropshire/West Midlands folks, I'm arranging a low-key weekend of Perseid watching and general astronomy antics in Shropshire. Six quid a night, dark sky, friendly campsite. The details and some pictures are on my blog in the sig. Everyone welcome!
