The night Time Lapse movie presented here was taken at ESO Paranal observatory (Chile). The four UTs (8m diameter telescope) are observing independently while the 4 ATs (1.8m diameter telescope), but only 3 visible on the video, observe synchronously the same object in interferometric mode. UT4, the telescope specialized in adaptive optics in the foreground, uses a Laser Guide Star to measure and correct for the atmosphere turbulence. The movie starts after sunset and stops just before sunrise. Orion constellation and the two Magellanic clouds are visible as well as the rising of the "summer" Milky Way (we are in the Southern hemisphere here :) !)
The original movie is a full sky high quality fish eye movie :
By "unwrapping" the high quality fish-eye movie above, we can obtain this unusual 360 degrees panoramic video panning all over the horizon. This geometrical transformation produces unavoidable geometrical distortion. This distortion can be seen on the laser beam (which is of course straight in normal life). You should really choose one of the highest quality settings to view this video and wait for the time it takes to load before watching it.
