First outing with a Coronado MaxScope 60 that Bolton Astronomical Society kindly loaned me. Amazingly, I got six straight hours of glorious sunshine between two colossal storms. However, I kept making loads of mistakes and hope to do better next time - assuming there is a next time with this blasted weather...
A total of 2100 photos were taken - every five minutes, the timer would fire off 10 sets of 3 bracketed shots. I used PhotoMatix to merge the resulting 30 shots into 10, and Registax to merge the 10 into 1. The resulting 70 stills were then loaded into Sony Vegas to create the video.
The music is a clip from a track I wrote for these videos called Astro:-http://soundcloud.com/mhouk/astro
Composed on my laptop using Spectrasonics Omnisphere and RMX, NI Komplete and Steinberg Cubase.
