eclipse timelapse [edit with new image]

hi team,

wasn't expecting to see much with the forecast for clouds - but managed to get the first half in well enough.

unfort i had to settle for my goto dob for this, focuser wasn't up to the challenge (im sure there was slippage) of the batter grip - but happy nonetheless.

i hope you managed to sneak a view

That was cool. How do you stitch all your subs into the time lapse?

Excellent animation, well done.

thanks Steve - I had the canon saving tiffs and jpgs. I just loaded the jpgs into PIPP and played around in the settings to get an avi file from it. took a few goes, could probably be improved where the mount had to be recentered.

Thanks Marc - me too was only expecting a few individual pics through gaps in clouds - hope you managed to take some pics as well.

Yes I was very lucky to capture the whole thing uninterrupted by clouds.
I'm slowly putting my brain back in gear trying to remember what I did in 2014 for registration and I just remembered this morning. If you have PixInsight there is a script called FFT Registration that will take one reference image and batch register a whole directory and output to FITS 16 bits. So you can feed it TIFF files.

All you do after is use another script which is the BatchFormatConversion and output to TIFF files. You can then load that as a time sequence in any video package and you'll have a nice steady video.

thanks Marc I actually had a timelapse from 2014 too (also affected by cloud)- yes i've got pixinsight but haven't really used it yet I was just looking up how to convert cr2 to tiff (on linux - new to that too) - have stumbled upon RawTherapee but i suppose pixinsight could probably do it all in one hit

- looking forward to your timelapse!
