This was shot over a few days in Watsonville, California with the new RAM Motorized Slider by Revolve Camera. I was shooting most scenes on the Dunes which turns out to be a very difficult location because of the sand. The slider tends to sink slowly and I did get sand on the rails but luckily I was able to clean them off after. Also, the nights on the beach in February are really cold and the lens (14mm Rokinon) fogged up around midnight during a timelapse. I didn't know until I finished and saw how wet all of my gear had become. I recommend keeping those hand warmers rubber banded around the lens or get a telescope Dew Heater to keep the lens from fogging on cold nights. *Some shots were done last month when I received my RAM add-on.
In the end I am still figuring out the best settings to use when doing Starlapses with the RAM motors (slow only). So far I have it set in the speed set in the middle in order to get the slider to move slow enough for a 10 second bulb exposure with my 14mm Rokinon and Canon T2i. Some shots were also done with two T2i's but the second only had a 35mm lens on it so some shots were a bit soft and exposure was set to 5 seconds or less.
