I did this video by pointing the a Sony A7S with 24mm f/1.4 lens 60 degrees up on a Star Adventurer Mini in panning mode. The entire unit did about three loops during a couple of hours.

It's a neat effect with the clouds and stars moving in a different direction.

That's pretty cool.

 

Here's what happens when you set things up the wrong way.

That's very neat, fellas. I have a Star Adventurer myself, but haven't tried out the timelapse mode yet. So what do you shoot in, jpeg? And what do you use to animate the frames?

 

Thanks

always shoot in RAW...low light photos is about teasing details in the shadows...which jpeg throws away to reduce file sizes

 

to animate, any movie making software works...i use imovie
