Hello all,

 

I'm pretty new here so please let me know if i'm posting in the wrong forum. I don't get much chance to do astrophotography in NW FL, as it's always humid or rainy. That said, we had a cool snap recently and it was clear enough to set my camera up in the backyard overnight to do a time lapse.

 

The camera is a 0.9 Megapixel Sionyx Aurora Sport, and it does pretty well in low light. Frames were taken one minute apart, over the course of a few hours. Exposures were 1.5 seconds each, and gain was at lowest setting to help minimize noise. This was my first time actually capturing the rotation of the earth around Polaris. Please ignore the antenna wire!

Cheers,
