Sunrise over the Montes Carpatus

Recommended Posts

Last night, I thought I'd try and capture a series of images of the terminator over a period of an hour or two and see if I could make an animated gif of the result.

Unfortunately, with the moon rotating at only a 28th of the speed of the earth, the results are a little underwhelming for a lot of work! I captured 2000 frames of 1/50 sec exposures at 20fps every 15 minutes for a period of 3.5 hours, with a QHY5-ii mono cam, 3x Barlow, 8" RC.

This is one full frame stacked image , with the box highlighting the area of the 15-frame animation. Lots of variation in the seeing, so the gif is a bit jerky, but at least it shows the changes in the shadows of the mountains over the period.
