day 55 – night lapse

This is my first attempt at a night time time lapse.  These are starting to get tricky now.  Getting the right amount of foreground light/exposure, as well as something interesting is going to be challenging.  Light pollution is a big hazard, even in this composition where I did not think there was much light pollution, there turned out to be loads, but then if you want to have foreground detail exposed you are going to get light pollution in the sky from that light source most likely.  I am going to need to do some internet searching to find out how to get my camera to take 30 second exposures with 1 second intervals.  The movement of the stars is way too jerky as the camera had to process the exposure, which took another 30sec, so the intervals where 30sec.  You’ll be surprised how quickly them stars move.  I ended up only getting 38 exposures over almost an hour, so this video has been “stretched” to spread the 38 frames over a 3 second video with a frame rate of 24 fps.
