Moon set time lapse

by , under Lunar

Here’s a time lapse video of the moon setting from June 28, 2009. This was about 1 hour and 20 minutes of shooting 30 second exposures at iso 800. There was a 20 second pause in between each shot. I imported aprox 180 still pictures into imovie, adjusted the play time on each one to 00:00:05 and then exported the movie. About 1/2 thru the movie I messed with the tripod which shifted the frame. I won’t do that next time. This was my first experience with time lapse and it think it turned out pretty cool. Its a lot easier than shooting with the scope ;0

    Now you need to make a time lapse of yourself out lounging by the pool whilst getting a moon tan. Sit still now… now don’t move a muscle…. only 6 more hours to go…

    eew… But beware of the chupacabra!
