It’s a MAC only tool, Starry Landscape Stacker, very nice tool. Photoshop will do it, so I don’t want to steer people wrong but it’s a cool app and I do prefer it. There’s a similar tool in Windows but I’ve never used it. Here’s a 5 stack shot from last night.

Our launch photographer visited Pad 41 today to grab these shots and set some remote cameras during some mostly uncooperative weather. The team will be at Cape in the morning for launch!

So, there’s a chance that enough light will be cast from the rising sun to illuminate but it’s right on the edge of that barrier... we’re within a degree or two from previous launches!

Basically the twilight phenomenon occurres when the sun is rising or setting and illuminates the rocket vapor trail when it gets in the upper layers of the atmosphere. In this case, we’re right on the edge of nautical twilight, and the rocket will be heading toward the sun.
