Conjunction Animation

Here is my animation of Venus, Jupiter and Spica (as always, click to enlarge, this will take a while). This project was inspired by Stuart's animation of Venus and Jupiter setting.
The first obvious difference is that here in Oz Venus and Jupiter set well after dark, so there are no nice colours like Stuart's, and you can't see the foreground trees (which I could see, but don't come out on the image at a gamma correction of 1.8, the highest I can go before things get grainy). At the end Jupiter winks out and in as it passess through some branches. Also Venis and co are setting almost vertically compared with stuarts image. Not a bad effort for using an elderly version of Gifcon.

I like it!!
