My first fleeting attempt at a time-lapse astrophotography animation. 30 second exposures for about 15 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised to find a galaxy (NGC2070, The Large Cloud Of Magellan) and shooting star clearly visible in the frame. It would be great to do something like this in 1080p HD over a couple of hours. Very impressed with the Nikon’s low light capabilities and relative lack of ISO and heat noise in the original uncompressed files.
