Your video is outstanding. You must have had a tracking device to keep the sun/moon in the viewfinder. Perhaps this was shot through your telescope pictured initially.

Actually NO, this sequence was shot through the Canon 840mm lens on the tripod. The image drifted all over the place. I would place it in the upper left corner and over the course of about 6 or 7 shots (every 15 seconds) it would drift down to the lower right corner.

This was fixed by manually positioning EVERY single frame in Premiere Pro before outputting the video. A very long, tedious job that took about 8 hours total.

BTW - I noticed a misspelled word in the opening graphic so I've re-edited it and now it's here.
