What I was talking about was the maximum value for each of the elements of the sensor (in the case of the Canon EOS 40D a CMOS sensor) and each element has a maximum value, when the transistor reaches its limit.

There is no real max possible values for the sensor, because as the light gets brighter, the aperture and shutterspeed reduce the amount of light that hit the sensor.

So how old is your daughter, who initially spotted the ufo, what did she think of it ? Can she make an ats account and share her opinions ?
If she alerted you that there was something flying in the sky, you probably had to come look for yourself first. Then you had to grab your camera, put it on, find the zoom button etc etc. and still you managed to make 11 decent photo's. gg
So it couldn't have flown very fast, why did you stop making photo's when it was a little bit further away ? Must have had enough time for that.
I do believe you're legit, and I really hope something comes out of this.

Thank you for posting such interesting photos and sparking a lively debate.
After viewing the animations that have been created, I have a question: Did this object appear to be tumbling while you were taking your photos? Did you move to a different position for a better vantage point or were you stationary throughout all of the photos?

But if both the tree and the object are somewhat distant and neither are moving much in regard to the observer, then you focus on infinity and both should be similarly resolved (slightly blurred).
Here is a cropped altered view.
The image on the left appears to me what it should look like with the settings on 'infinity'.
The image on the right is a cropped original (from the large file upload), and it appears -to me- that the object is too sharp and that it is closer to the cameraman rather than farther away.
Now, it could be an illusion. I'm not a professional photographer.
