Caption: Timelapse sequence taken at sunrise from Cerro Tololo observatory (ctio.noao.edu/), looking north-west towards La Serena. Earth's shadow and the Belt of Venus (apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap060723.html) are setting over the swirling clouds of the coastal marine layer. Note the shadow of the mountain at the end of the video, with a tiny extra shadow from the enormous dome of the Blanco telescope.
But my favorite detail about this video are the anticrepuscular rays, converging towards the point opposite the Sun (left of the center of the images). These are shadows cast by clouds (and in this case, the Andes?) when the Sun is low. The shadows are parallel, but thanks to perspective appear to meet in the distance - think train tracks.
What a great way to finish a night of observing!

Caption: This is a late submission, of my video work documenting the dissappointing comet Pan-STARRS in March.
I took advantage of a home visit to China to follow comet Pan-STARRS at its best. This short time-lapse compilation includes footages from three clear nights within a period of 15 days. I came up with some graphics to demonstrate how the orbital positions of the comet changed with respect to the sun and inner solar system planets. From the graphics, it is obvious that the comet wasn't very well positioned and always remained rather distant from earth. Had the comet visited a few months earlier, we might have been greeted with great excitement instead of disappointment. Anyways we still have comet ISON later to look forward to.

Caption: I just published my last night timelapse. The video is made on La Palma (Canary Islands), one of the darkest skies and one of the best observatories.
The video is done at night timelapse. From many corners of the island shows the sky and landscape.
The video shows scenes of the Milky Way, zodiacal light, telescopes, stars, clouds etc..
I started to make the video in November 2013 and finished in May 2013

That certainly is a beautiful loop animation, colmic. It's also huge! I suggest converting it to a video format and uploading it to YouTube. It strains our users who have less advanced internet connections.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

Solar disc and prominence evolution with single exposure

Finally finished to work on my last timelapse. Next the edge of the Sun there were few active zones and filaments so I decided to try a different setting to capture disc and prominence together. It was hard not to overexpose the disc and in post processing i had to work on two separate way the two zones and then normalize the details for the very variable and bad seeing. There aren't big events but at full screen after seeng the clip at distance for the full overview you can follow the evolution of small sun portion. For example:
Next the center noaa 1820 I see small spots, they seem Ellerman bomb but they are moving, leaving the umbra along the filament/spicules and there is a micro flare in the noaa 1830 on the left like the phenomena saw by the UCLan Solar Physicists few weeks ago. "We saw huge clumps of charged gas (plasma) racing along highways sculpted by the star's magnetic field. This speeding material was moving inside solar filament." Hope you like the video.

Diavolezza - Above the Glacier
Author: Lorenzo Comolli ( http://www.astrosurf.com/comolli/index2.htm )
Recommended: 1080p, full screen, audio on.
A night above the Glacier with the Full Moon. The wonderful landscape from Diavolezza in the main theme of this timelapse video. The observing point is at 3000 m in the Bernina Range, Switzerland, with the Pers and Morteratsch Glaciers below. Nearly 3100 single shots, for a total of 31 GB, and three DSLR, were needed to produce this video that includes also dolly and panning sequences.
Obtained on August 21, 2013, under the Full Moon.

This was filmed between 26 May 2012 and 6 June 2012. I first visited Mount Bromo in April 2012 for 2 nights and I was so fascinated by the many possibilities that this amazing landscape can offer and so I decided to revisit Mount Bromo and I produced my first time-lapse movie there.

My goal was to capture the beautiful milky way galaxy and sun rise along with the 3 volcanoes namely Mount Bromo, Mount Semeru and Mount Batok.
