In August 2015 I travelled to the wonderful Canary island of La Palma to observe the night sky with my home-built telescope. Meanwhile, I made a series of time-lapse sequences in which I tried to capture the splendor of the incredible La Palma night sky. I am mostly a visual observer and not particularly a astophotographer, and besides some test sequences shot at home, this is my first attempt to shoot and edit a time-lapse movie like this. For most of the scenes I used some sort of motorized tracking platform - a Skywatcher Star Adventurer mount or a home-built timelape slider. In some of the frames I can be seen stargazing at the telescope with a red flashlight (to maintain my night vision).
