It is relatively simple, none of the steps were very difficult at all. It is just that each step had to be repeated 42 times making the amount of work quickly fill hours. One of the biggest issues was rotation as I was using an alt-az mount, so each frame had to be de-rotated by hand, very tedious. I am seriously considering a wedge at this point! I was worried about creating the final animated GIF, but Dean Salman pointed out to me that ImageReady (the companion program to Photoshop CS) makes this easy, just import a whole directory as frames and save as an animated GIF.
