Image Parameter Details
Comments: Here we have 6 frames from the Tempel 1 movie at
A total of 85 exposures were taken between 22:40 and 23:40 when the trapezoidian mount ran out of room.
Each frame of the movie is 4 exposures stacked. You can sort of see it getting brighter if you compare it to the surrounding stars and ignore the brightening horizon.
Also you can see the comet tracking across the stars in the background.
