Too much time I know - but has the weather prohibits any astronomy activity at the moment, I did a quick animation of my 'failed' meteor shots from a few nights ago (I say 'failed' as they didn't capture a single meteor)! However uploading the sequence,  which were tracked with my AstroTrac BTW, gave the impression that my conifer seemed to have gone into orbit.

A bit 'rough & ready' I know, but it just seemed a shame to waste the frames!  Grin

Reminds me a bit of the noise that you used to get in early B/W movies - so voila!  Grin
