Edit 18 Sep-2022, restored from my local HDD.

Once again I went back to one of my first hard disks bought for this hobby :-)

A couple of months after I bought my first two scopes & a camera I took 4 single images of this great event, when it started.

I can't remember why I did not take the whole start sequence, strange!

At that time I had very little experience with my EQ. which can be seen, but once again the weather is awful in CPH DK and I had to do something ... :-)

The 4 single images was taken within the same minut, 22nd May 2007, 09.13pm and processed into a gif sequence today.

Exposure details: ISO 400, 4x1/160 sec.

I converted the 4 cropped images to BW ones in PS.

My home build observatory is placed in my front yard/in the "red light" pollution zone, have a look here,
