View Full Version here: : A transit collage (and now with animation!)

Here's a little collage of some of my images, including a series around first and second contact. After this I headed into my kid's school with my telescope (http://www.iceinspace.com.au/forum/showthread.php?t=91886) and only managed to occasional shot (but had lots of fun sharing it with the kids!).
Thanks for looking!

Great work Stephen,this is great-the best PPing and presentation I've seen,I really like the top set the most,what software do you use to do all that?although I suspect its more the clever skills you have in PPing.:thumbsup:

Thank very much Ray, Derek, Chris, David and Matt! Much appreciated.
I used GIMP to put the collage together, after first processing the frames in LR3.
I've just put together a little animation covering the first 30 minutes of the transit using GIMP as well.

And here's a final animation which spans the entire transit! There's a few big gaps (where I was showing the school kids the transit through my scope), but I'm pleased to have captured enough images to put this together. :)
The 1.3 mg file is here (http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8146/7167933525_4735acdac3_o.gif). Hope you like it.
