I vote for the third animation. The clouds that "mostly stayed north" were directly over the Vekol Road observing site.

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.
