Astronomical Time Lapses
by Lorenzo Comolli and other friends

Here are some astronomical videos realized using a DSLR camera and time-lapse shootintg. The resulting videos are - in my opinion - quite amazing, showing the star motions, the Sun setting or rising and other interesting phenomenas. A detailed explanation of the techniques is here (sorry, only Italian language), or on S&T Aug 2009, Astronomia UAI Jan-Feb 2010, Nuovo Orione Jul 2007 and Jun 2010.
Note about file formats. A large number of standards exist, and now we prefer using video sharing websites like YouTube. Anyway for those unable to look at them, we still offer some alternative: MP4 (with H.264 codec), AVI (mainly Xvid codec), or Flash SWF (required Flash, be aware swf is bad quality). To watch MP4 and AVI files we reccommend using VLC.
