Comet 103P/Hartley Motion Animation Oct 8, 2010 (!!17MB GIF !!)

I'm still struggling on how to process the comet against a static, but separately processed stellar field.  Here's a cool effect, 2 minute sub exposures times 32 quantity.  Spanning ~100 minutes of time (small dithering time in between each sub and some tossed subs).

Warning, this file is 17MB

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
