1 of 2 | Comet Neowise, as the night sky appears to rotate, it is the Earth that spins
Intervalometry notes: Comet Neowise passed by Earth in the summer of 2020. The comet’s tail is a fine contrail in the starry sky. Near the horizon, where it seems stationary in the rotating sky, the frame is enlarged using digital pan ‘n scan, a nineties term, meaning digital zoom. The extra resolution of the original images allows this. Meteorites can be observed in digital frames, as well as airplanes, zooming by in just a few frames. Playback length at 30 fps: 15 seconds, 28 frames.
