Time lapse video of the southern sky from dusk to dawn at the All Star Alberta Party March 30 to April 4, 2011 sponsored by All-Star Telescope. Orion can be seen setting on the right at the beginning of the sequence and followed by Canis Major, Puppis, Vela, Hydra, Vela and Virgo. Later the centre of the Milky Way rises along with Saggitarius and Scorpius before dawn.
1118 frames were taken for 30sec each at f/4 and ISO 1600 using a tripod mounted Canon T1i with a Sigma 10-20mm lens at 10mm focal length. They were processed in Photoshop and Wndows Movie Maker.
