Near Stafford UK, Morning 24/12/2013 -- Exact time ;44:30 -- Nikon D3200 lens 10 - 24mm f/3.5- 4.5 -- focal length 12mm -- focus mode AF-S -- Aperture f/10 -- Shutter Speed 1/125s -- exp + aperture priority -- exp comp -1.0EV -- Matrix Metering -- ISO 400 -- Auto White Balance ---- Not seen through lens, if I had of done then maybe the shot would have been missed - definately something rapid - look at tree - no blur evident ?? I can provide the NEF original although a handsome size.. and also one photo taken 4 seconds prior to this at 90 deg opposed but enough background to show nothing around.. any guesses anyone ?
Ps, facing east when photo taken... sun was to right hande side .. well out the way of this shot..
I did a quick calculation based on the shutter speed and the total length of the object and contrail.. to traverse the available sky on the trajectory shown it would take approx 21/125s ....
I have included the original NEF (direct from Camera) a NEF converted to JPEG a crop, and an enhanced crop.. I think Your I.T. people should be able to manipulate the NEF file well enough to get somewhere near to the image I have been able to enhance.
