Movie made on April 3, 2017. 30 videos of 60 sec. With intervals of 60 sec. Capture 10,000 frames per video by stacking 3050 frames of each video on AS! 3 to assemble this fantastic GIF using PIPP.   The small variation from one frame to another is inherent in the variation of the seeing for 1 hour that lasted the capture.
