Since my first time lapse video, I have learned to focus stars. Pretty tricky stuff, I know.
These shots are of the southern skies from latitude -37.7, in February 2013. You can see Jupiter follow the Pleides behind the tree after 32 seconds.
Notice in the best and clearest night shot at 1.15, the Eta Carinae Nebula disappearing up the top as the Earth rotates. You can see the rotation around the southern celestial pole near the top right of the screen (sorry Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC galaxies) are out of view) en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celestial_pole. If you find the southern cross on the left and think of it as a sword, you can see it almost points straight at it. The southern celestial pole is due south. I just saved your life if you get lost in the bush. Unless it's cloudy, in which case you'll be lucky to make it.
There are also many meteors to see.
