STARGAZERS are set to enjoy the spectacle of a comet zooming through the skies this weekend.

The stunning Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdušáková will appear gracefully green in the night skies.

Discovered in December 3, 1948 and named after Minoru Honda, Antonín Mrkos, and Ľudmila…

For some reason, there isn't all that much out there for people who are just starting out -- there's more for people who are already immersed in making videos themselves. So with planetarium folks who have not done their own video processing much in mind, here are the tools I've found in the…
