Solar System Events

Solar system events here include eclipses and transits.  Note the lunar eclipse sequence shows the Moon occulting some stars.

The 4/15/2014 lunar eclipse was aligned by manually overlaying each of the frames.  I don’t remember how many, it was more than 200.

The Venus transit movie was finally compiled in late 2014, using a trial version of Adobe After Effects.  It sufficiently stabilized the image.

The annular eclipse sequence was also a manual overlay of each frame.
