I took a look at the tutorial and unfortunately didn't find anything that would look similar to above mentioned track. Maybe it would be nice to update the tutorial?- just a small suggestion from your colleague, a chemist:)
I actually think this one got looked at quite a bit in Phase 3, and might even be a fiducial. If not, you may be in luck! I'll promote it to what's known as the "Alpha List" where it will definitely get some attention. Otherwise, perhaps our veteran dusters are passing it over as a fiducial? Would be good to get some of their feedback here.

Regardless, thanks for pointing it out!

Any opinions about this movie?

http://stardustathome.ssl.berkeley.edu/ ... =4774009V1

seems to me that there is something interesting at about (500,15)

Well, Klemek, if you meant the feature at about 500/150 (vs. 15), that is interesting. It doesn't quite strike me as a track, but I've been wrong many times before. I'll go ahead and add it to the Alpha Listing and we'll see what the Red Team thinks of it. It might be a while before it gets evaluated, though. "Someone" (not Dan) at Berkeley dumped a ton of movies there for evaluation and it will take a while to wade through them all - I've managed about 8% so far. Not complaining, just saying. 8)

I did not hear a single duster make over this track. Doesn't someone think this might be the real thing?

Certainly looks different than the tracks that were all used to but in my opinion, this is a real track. No doubt that I would have clicked on it too. Only one question remains... what is it made of? :wink:

Beauty! Just promoted it to the Alpha List for Berkeley team review.

Thanks,

Hi nitram819,

I like both of those light ones.

The last track you posted with the two Calibration tracks in it; the track, I think, is in the bottom right corner and looks almost like two dots     :

Great finds, thanks!

Amazing, I did not see that one. At the time when I first saw the movie, I was struggling about which of those two things I was supposed to click on. I actually thought it was a calibration movie gone bad hehe

Here are a few that I've found that might be worth a look:

Movie 7741982V1
Movie 7069356V1
Movie 5081155V1 – straight-in (not high-angle) at coordinates (x=35, y=250).
Movie 1467343V1 – fiducial?
Movie 1557734V1 - small one at coordinates (x=400, y=375).

If any of these have already been promoted to the Alpha List, please forgive the duplication.

Here is that dark movie: 8806280V1

Here is an old movie from Phase one 9987464V1

Would you agree that they are the same movie?

@fjgiie:
You're right- both movies show the same feature. There is slightly different magnification level though.
