I am thrilled to share my short-film documenting our PlaneWave Instruments 1-meter telescope install in Chile!
The high elevation and stable atmospheric conditions make Chile the perfect location for large aperture research telescopes. The install took 10 hours from the crane-lift until capturing first-light images of the night sky!
I used a Nikon D850 and D750 to capture the night sky timelapses using 8 second photos. The wide angle lens was the Nikon 14mm and the tighter crop was a Rokinon 24mm.
