This was shoot with a Canon 7D to CR2 RAW files. A 2s exposure every 3s, at ISO 200, F/22 using a 10-22mm lens. To allow for the long exposure I initially placed 5 stops worth of neutral density filters. The camera is mounted on a telescope head (a.k.a MiLapse mount) to give some extra motion to the image.
The CR2 files were batch converted to CineForm RAW, into a real-time playable AVI with resolution 5184 x 3456. This was loaded into CineForm FirstLight for color correction and some reframing. This was then loaded into VirtualDub for scaling to 1920x1080. I used Premiere Pro CS5, to cut, title and exported via Adobe Media Encoder to produce the 1080p mp4 upload.
