November 20th, 2013 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

Time lapse video of Spica and Comet ISON rising, Nov. 20, 2013, over northeast Alabama. It was very windy, so there is a little camera shake as it zooms in from full frame to 130% crop. Composed of 326 frames from a Canon 6D, Canon 200mm f/2.8 lens (@ f/5.6), ISO 1600, 30 sec exposures. Tracking with AstroTrac. Note the movement of the comet past the neighboring stars late in the video.
