    Thanks for useful info !
    when I want to check/analyze a video I want to use single-stepping
    and/or slow-motion, enhance contrast/brightness and capture stills or
    short sections of the movie.
    Are there any free (or cheap) utilities for some of that ?
    In general, those who use video for satellite observations should
    collaborate to create a web page, or at least a sub-section
    of to describe video production and analysis
