Star lapsing

 —  — 

A Calm / Clear / Cold night! I’ve been meaning to get a good star lapse for a while now, but calm / clear nights are hard to come by in Wellington haha. Finally one come along and I had the camera AC adaptor at home too. So setup the camera on the balcony, took a few tethered frames to make sure everything was in focus, then left her running for about 2.5 hours at 30 sec intervals…  320 frames where captured here and as a special bonus, a faint glimpse of the Aurora Australis! You can really see it in this crunched down youtube vid though :(
