My all sky camera EN-98 captured the lunar eclipse of September 28, 2015. I made a movie of 230 images taken in the period of 23:00 and 04:43 UT. Each exposure was 1m29s. You can clearly see how the sky becomes darker as the moon moves increasingly into the Earth's shadow. There are also clouds visible moving fast from north east to southwest.
Time lapse moviesPosted by Koen Miskotte Sun, October 06, 2013 14:35:45 My second time lapse movie from Revest du Bion is ready. The time lapse is made of nearly 1,000 images, taken with a Canon EOS 40D camera and a Sigma 4.5mm F2.8 EX DC Circular Fisheye HSM lens. The images underwent batch processing in Irfanview (crop to 1920x1920 pixels, sharpen, brightness, contrast and gamma) and some post-processing in Corel Paint Shop Pro XII. Then followed by the making of the movie in Windows Movie Maker. Unfortunately, this 40D shows a few bad pixels.
Time lapse moviesPosted by Koen Miskotte Mon, September 23, 2013 10:57:56 This is a time lapse movie I made during the night of 14/15 august 2013. I used a Canon EOS40D DSLR camera with a Canon EF 15 mm F 2.8 fish eye lens. The camera was operated with a timer controller TC80N3. The mount was a Manfrotto tripod and a Vixen Polarie Startracker. There is much to see, for example the surroundings of the Gite Pierre Rousse, the constellations (e.g. the "Big Dipper"), two passages of the International space Station (ISS) at 00:30 and 00:48 (both in the Big Dipper) and a bright Perseid meteor at 1:50. Enjoy watching!
I am 51 years old and working as a confectioner in a backery. My passion is observing and photographing meteors, comets and other astronomical objects. I am a prolific meteor observer and my first observations date back to 1978. Since that time I have observed 70,000 meteors. In 2008 I recieved the Dr.. J. van der Bilt award of the KNVWS for my work in meteor astronomy. Click here for photos. In the same year, my family name was immortalized. An asteroid with provisional designation 2002 QX65 got the final name 132820 Miskotte Click here for an interactive plot (NASA website).
I also like "heavy music" such as heavy metal, hardrock, trash metal etc. Hence the name AstroRocker!
