Last Friday night on 12/30 I was testing out my first Off Axis guider (Astrodon Mega MOAG) and imaging IC 410 - The Tadpoles in constellation Auriga and noticed a slow moving object when I stacked the images. Turned out to be Asteroid 157 Dejanira discovered in 1875. The .gif is over the course of 8 hours from 20:00 on 12/30 to 04:00 on 12/31 (EST).
First time trying to make a movie or .gif, I used Blink in PixInsight with ffmpeg arguments. Then used ffmpeg in a terminal prompt to convert the .mov to a looping gif. Sorry if this is laggy or skipping, I'm not sure how to play with the resolution or file size and quality.
