    Celestial Navigation in a .Gif
    From: Sean C

    I want to make some animations in .gif format as aids to teaching celestial. They could be used as illustrations within the text of a web page or packaged with supporting material for download perhaps. I made this animation as a kind of "proof of concept" and if anyone would be so kind, I'd appreciate some feedback. Is the file/animation size too big/small? Is it too long/fast/slow? Is it easy/difficult to see on your monitor? Etc.


    Ideas for future animations would be most welcome. I'd like to keep them limited to concepts which would benefit the most from an illustration. I won't exactly be cranking these out as I don't have too much free time between work and home life. I just happened to get two days off in a row this week and have been hanging out at home to avoid the idiots on the roads. (Folks from southeastern Virginia don't do well in snow.) The animation is attached in both .gif and Photoshop project formats if you want to mess around with it. Thanks in advance for any replies!
