Great stuff Dean! The movement of the scopes and the clouds add a lot of interest. I found it interesting to see how much Polaris moves. It is further out from the pole than one realizes. Was interesting as well to see how much illumination the moon brought to the last sequence. Thank you for sharing them.

Hi All- I haven't had an AZ-Observing note in days, rare for a semi-dark weekend - am I missing anything? I got permission to go up to Kitt Peak friday night and spend a few hours taking some photo sequences. The first one is with the 20mm at F/4 - a 90 second exposure every 3 minutes - about an hour of elapsed time: http://alice.as.arizona.edu/~ketelsen/WorkingScopes1.gif The next is with a 16mm fisheye same exposure info as above. The flash of lights are the 15 cars I counted going down the hill from the evening observing program: http://alice.as.arizona.edu/~ketelsen/WorkingScopes2.gif And the last is from a mile down the road, looking back with an 80mm lens at F/2 - 60 second exposures every 2 minutes. Moonrise happens about 3/4 of the way thru: http://alice.as.arizona.edu/~ketelsen/WorkingScopes3.gif At first I thought the clouds (which mostly stayed north) would make the GIFs poor, but I think they add a lot to the sequences. Fortunately, they didn't get high enough to affect the big scopes much. Anyone want to declare favorites? -Dean -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list. -- See message header for info on list archives or unsubscribing, and please send personal replies to the author, not the list.
