Sad, but looking through my video's I see the last "real" time spent out doing EAA was back on 29 April. On that time, I upped my normal 30 sec single shot images to 60 sec single shots (still at iso800) and grabbed a HD desktop capture. 16 minutes worth slewing to a bunch of galaxies and "viewing". The red central bit you'll see in the images on screen was due to me stretching the Expand in Astrotoaster to 6 which tends to show vignetting as a red central 'hue' from the modded camera. I don't care too much when that happens as I'm not chasing AP quality, I'm having a look at the thing and don't mind some aberations showing up. Having said that, this video is really quick grab-a-shot-and-move-on. You'll glimpse in the File List window that I'd previously 'observed' a whole bunch of stuff prior to starting the video. I like to spend several minutes looking at each object I 'view' and look up on the iPad SKySafari app all the details. That's the wonder of it all. Not really the speed of acquiring and slewing off to other stuff as in the vid.
The usual thing with my vid's ... they are HD and I waffle a bit ... so use the Youtube settings "cog" to set 1.5x speed so the 16 min vid ends up about 10 mins, and also set the highest possible HD quality then go full screen.
I watched it at 2x and it is still good. Faster too
