Astrophotography timelapses are spectacular short movies showing the motion of stars over extended periods of time and compressing hours into seconds. Just as the nightscapes – this is best done representing a connection to
the land.

Some specialised equipment is used for the greatest effect for motion timelapses and nightscapes combined. A general rule – 14 and a half hours of taking photos equates to 60s of timelapse (based on 30s exposures with a 5s interval at 25 frames per second). This is best for movie formats such as television and other video media.

  • Timelapse may include a day to night or night to day component.
  • Timelapse may be a combination of set camera and motion timelapse (camera moving)
