      Hi,

      With lots of patience, especially in the processing (whole day processing) I managed to get a relatively good animation of this rare event.

      Here is the link to the animation: http://leonardmercer.synthasite.com/astronomy.php

      Telescope: C11 on CGE mount
      Camera: DSI Col. with x2 Barlow lens.
      Took 20 sets of 120 exposures each (.0882sec/exp) Used 14 for animation.
      Conditions: Moderately good.
      Time: From 11.00pm 3/8/09 to 3.15 am. 4/8/09

      It was worth it.

      We have to wait another 100 years for a similar event! :-)
