Some initial tests of the Orion TeleTrack (aka 'Merlin' or 'Skywatcher') integration with the dynamicperception.com Stage Zero Timelapse Dolly. Everything is running off the MX2 controller including the camera trigger. More info on how control these telescope heads can be found here: http://bit.ly/ebI2To
Part one is using a GH1 & Switar 26/1.1 - I was having fun with the dof and unique flare of this lens.
Part two is using the 5D & Nikon 17-35/2.8 - you can definitely see where I pushed the speed a little too far like on the first shot of my lady's Christmas knit projects.
