He writes: " I guess the Ursids are done but here's an image of Tuttle from 01/01/08 UT showing the garden hose spiral effect. The image is comprised of the difference between two images, taken over two hours apart. Each individual image is comprised of 100 8.53 second images, stacked in Registax. The first images was started around 01/01/08 00:00 UT and the second image started 02:11 UT. I used an 8" Reflector at around f/4 and StellaCam II."
