Under the Milky Way
This is my first try in making a time-lapse movie from hundreds of still images that lasted for over 5 hours on the evening of the 27th & 28th of June 2014...I hope you like it :-)
If you want to include trees in your time-lapse, it’s best to wait for a night when there’s hardly any wind, that’s because you want to make the turning sky the object of interest. If the trees are blowing about, this distracts from the beautiful movement of the night sky as our Earth rotates under the heavens.
What can you see in the movie: The camera lens was pointed to the south-western part of the sky where you can see the dark dust lanes and nebulosity of the Milky Way within the constellations of Carina, Vela, The Southern Cross, Centaurus & Corvus.
You will also see come into view the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) in the bottom left hand part of the images. This small satellite galaxy is gravitationally bound to our own galaxy at a distance of 170,000 light years away. The constellations of Scorpius and Sagittarius were starting to dive down into the western sky when unexpected cloud started to roll in…

This is just a guide for you as I’m only new to all this…best wishes, Noeleen :-)
