Asteroid Animation - BL86 passing M44

Technical card

Resolution: 1000x667

Locations: Backyard, Salt Lake City, Utah, United States


This was so much work to make. massive light pollution, huge amounts of smog due to winter inversion in the salt lake valley, and high clouds through out the entire shooting session. but i managed to process it (so much work for a not so great image), and at least it can be seen. It is a 60 x 60 sec compilation. 55 frames ended up being good enough for the animation. Processing them all the same was a huge challenge. I hope you enjoy this effort.
