anybody missing, within camera range?,,or died at the time the pic was taken?,,
well we do lose 2lbs, apparentlyunaccounted for,,so the rumour goes,,,, but might be just poop,,,
What kind of camera did you use?
You said you had it sitting on your car to steady it. Okay. However, were you still holding it at all?
When you opened the shutter (took the picture), you had to touch the camera, did you have a setting to delay opening up the shutter? (asking because click in the the shutter can cause the camera to move during long exposures)
During the 8 seconds while taking the picture, did you touch the car at all? Lean on it at all? Lean on it then straightened up off of it? All those things can cause the car to move slightly, which in turn moves the camera, and during long exposures (especially zoomed in long exposures) will jitter the object on your picture.
I'm asking these questions because I do astrophotography shots with my DSLR camera. Camera has to be mounted on a tripod and not touched during exposures, especially long exposures.
Most wide angle lens shots, you can expose your frame for up to 15 seconds and there will be no streaking from the stars, moon, etc due to the Earth's rotation. Longer than than if you are not compensating for the rotation will cause streaks from the Earth's rotation if you're not tracking the object.
However, if you zoom in on a object, that 15 seconds is to long. Depending on the amount of zoom, 8 seconds can be way too long and the object in a picture will streak or move across the frame.
