1. Trails End is a compilation of some of my best timelapse shot in 2014, with a few Aurora shots from early this year. On many of the locations, I used my Palomino SS-1251 truck camper from Cheyenne Camper Center, often ending up near the end of some remote trail. It was shot in Wyoming, Utah and South Dakota. You can see the rest of the shots and full length sequences on the 30+ minute “Trails End” feature, which you can download dakotalapse.com . Available in 4K UHD, up to 4096 X 2304, for licensing.

    Some events to watch for:

    The slower moving light streaks are airplanes, the fast ones are satellites. I also caught many meteors which are only 1 frame or 1/24th of a second on the timelapse.
    :56 Bolide Meteor
    1:01 Aurora at Devils Tower and throughout video
    1:33 Two Bolide Meteors
    Meteors With Persistent Trains 2:29 very fast and short persistent train to right of the Milky Way, a better one at 3:20
    2:43 Final Boost Stage of GSSAP and ANGELS satellites
    2:55 Owl sitting in tree
    3:00 Pink Aurora in the sand dunes of Wyoming’s Red Desert
    3:14 Sprites and Gravity Waves

    Cheyenne Camping Center – cheyennecampingcenter.com They gave me a great deal on a Palomino Palomino SS-1251 camper which worked great, they also have a great service department.

    Dynamic Perception – The Stage Zero and Stage One dollies were used in many of the shots. I can’t recommend them enough for a quality product at a low price. dynamicperception.com/?Click=1228

    eMotimo – Great pan and tilt motion control. This will also mount on the Dynamic Perception Dollies. See more about the eMotimo TB3’s on my website. dakotalapse.com/2014/01/emotimo-tb3-motion-control/
