Time Lapse movie, 1999 to 2013

I have my hard drives full of images. Especially the time lapse photos take a lot of space. To get some use of it I put together all these short videos to an overview of the years from 1999 to 2013. Mostly I have used DSLR cameras for this. Canon 350D, Canon 5D Mk I, Canon 6D and some other cameras. I have also made notes in the video of what equipment I use.


If you find it interesting, here it is:

It's the one on top of the list.

Now I have uploaded my second video: Comet gallery, 1996 to 2023.

It's on the 2nd row of this list:

Most of them from a Bortle 9 environment.

That is pretty cool, Lars.

My first astro images were of Comet Halley in 1985/86 (on hypersensitized film) and it was a friend's image of Comet McNaught in 2007, on a digital camera, that eventually got me back into astrophotography.

Hi Pete,

It sounds a bit exotic "Comet Halley in 1985/86 (on hypersensitized film)". Are you a retired astronomer ? A little bit too advanced to be an amateur astronomer, or ?

I wrote an article long ago about the astrograph we have nearby to where I live. When I interviewed the astronomers they explaind to me the work behind the photos they took, very interesting. No tiny 24x36 mm full frame sensors, more 180x180 mm or even bigger.

Here is my article which is now translated to English:

No - nothing like that. Hypersensitized film was the best choice for astro-imaging back then. You could buy it commercially but friends of mine (who worked as industrial chemists) hypersensitized the film themselves (Kodak Ektachrome 400 etc) which allowed for more choices.

It must have been an exciting work done.

Maybe there are people even today do chemical astrophotography, medium format I think. A Pentax 67 with a film area of 60x70mm, and then scan it in a high resolution scanner. With auto guiding the exposure time can be hours.

More for exciting than high resolution.

Who remember the Philips Toucam 840 pro, a web camera that could be used for astrophotography ?

Look at top of list:

Before the DSLR era.
