Comet ISON time lapse, Nov. 11, 2013

November 11th, 2013 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

This is my third attempt at a time lapse video of Comet ISON from this morning, Nov. 11, 2013, near New Market, Alabama.

I used a Canon 6D with Canon 200mm f/2.8 lens with Canon 2x extender, at f/16, ISO 1600, 77 60-sec exposures. Tracking with Astrotrac on a Ravelli tripod. Temperature was about 43 deg F.

    Fun, Thanks —– I have a few former students who are now teachers. I will make sure they see this. (and a few others) and note (when it comes) the monthly UAH temp update.

    Why won’t science say a crisis is inevitable instead of nothing beyond just could be?

    Tracking with AstroTrac? Great timelapse, but it isn’t tracking the stars. What did you use for panning?
