Talk: Using Tracker to Measure the Length of the Sidereal Day 

written by Mario Belloni

This talk describes how we use the Tracker video analysis and modeling program to analyze still images.  We have used a group of still 30-second images taken 9 ½ minutes apart (for 10 minutes between images).  To analyze these images we use Tracker.  We use the feature in Tracker which automatically creates a "movie" of still images and then allows the user to define the time interval between images.  In this talk we show our preliminary results and propose possible future improvements.
