This is my Perseid GIF movie. It is a total of 3.6 hours of single images made into an MP4 and then to a GIF. There were 864 images used to make this. The shots were taken from my light polluted front yard. Each exposure was 6 seconds with a 9 second delay between shoots. I would go out and try to recenter the camera on the Double Cluster every so often.

All processing was done within PixInsight. Video processing was done within PixInsight but called FFMPEG.
