Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) video - if it shows.

Recommended Posts

Not the best image, but one of my most onerous processing sessions to get anything half-decent from the stacking. A bit over processed, even for me, but I've learned more about PixInsight that will come in hand later.

From the same data as the video we get this from the first 50 of 100 stacked images.  The rest were interrupted by a dither or re-centering by Asiair so decided not to try to add them in as well.

Super animation - how long was the time period?

Each capture was 60 seconds and this was a made with the best 48 of 50 shots (last 2 made it jump a little too much).

Used an ImageContainer in PixInsight for the files to process and ProcessContainer to run a stretch & crop on them all. I tried the video maker in the Blink viewer and saved each as a png file, but ended up using a program from GitHub (makeavi.exe) to convert them to an avi.
