This image was taken by Alex Houston at 18.14 UT on 30/11/14 from Tullibody, Clackmannanshire using an Imaging Source DMK 41AM02.AS monochrome camera on a Sky-watcher Evostar-100ED2 PRO apochromatic refractor fitted with a 3x Barlow Lens. The camera creates an AVI at 15fps, so the frame length was set at 1/19s (intentionally slightly less that the maximum frame length for this rate). It was set to collect a minimum of 1000 frames but in fact it took 1123 frames, with a total exposure time of 1'14''. The AVI file was aligned and stacked using RegiStax 6 with some wavelet filtering and some minor adjustment in Photoshop CS5 using levels.
