- Nov 2, 2012Thanks, Cal. I remember seeing the Northern Lights at Tuckahoe several years ago at one of our star parties. I was setting up my refractor for imaging and couldn't understand why it hadn't got dark yet. Thought I was wrong about the time when twilight ended

Subject: [delmarvastargazers] Time-lapse
A few weeks ago while at the observatory in WV, I shot an all night
time-lapse with my Canon T2i. Individual exposures were 30sec with a 1
sec delay. The fisheye lens was wide-open at f3.5 and the camera set on
1600 ISO. Wound up with about 1150 frames that were stitched together
I used Windows Live Movie Maker that came with my Win 7 OS to add a
title page and some text. Probably should replace some of the text with
sound but that was over my head. Posted this (my first) on YouTube. If
you view this, bump up the window size because it posted quite a bit
darker than it appeared on my monitor. It's interesting to watch the
number of plane trails drop as the night wears on.
Here's the link. Let me know what you think.
There's a nice surprise at the end near dawn.
Good rainy weather project,
