Comet C/2012 K5 (LINEAR) Flyby.

This is a composition of more than 250 shots of 20" ,processed and elaborated to create an animation of the comet C/2012 K5 (LINEAR) , that is moving fast out of our solar system. Thanks to all NightSky friends that encourages me to make this video during our winter star party, on the 4th of January. RC 8" with Atik 4000m. Please watch in HD.



Best regards,

This timelapse was shot entirely at night in Namibia. The footage was shot with Nikon DSLRs over a period of almost two years, during which I shot over 16,000 images. Each second of video consists of 30 pictures.

The video recently won First Prize at the Travel Photographer of the Year Awards.

Enjoy!

Here is a video I made a few months ago for the NSF's Vsualisation Challenge. It is a short tour of the nearby Universe, as seen in neutral atomic hydrogen. It starts with our own galaxy, then moves to more distant objects, ending up about a billion or two light years from Earth. The images are all real data, not simulations. There is also a sequence showing the optical counterparts of over 11,000 HI detections - here the images are all unique to each galaxy, no templates were uses.
The video was created using the realtime display of Blender 2.49.

Remastered movie of the Voyager 2 approach sequence to Jupiter
Click to play embedded YouTube video.
This movie was constructed using images taken by the Voyager 2 spacecraft as it raced towards Jupiter in June 1979. The moons Io and Europa are visible as unaligned color triplets. Orange, Green and Blue filtered shots, taken through the spacecraft's narrow-angle-camera (NAC), were de-noised, aligned and combined to produce each individual movie frame.

Let to introduce my new video about the night sky over Belarus. Not every people in America and even in Europe knows something about this place. Belarus is a not large country in Eastern Europe bordered by Poland, Ukraine, Lithuania. Due to northern latitudes we are not able to see the Galaxy center and bright southern constellations. But we have romantic bright summer twilights, long winter nights with plenty of stars, we can observe silver noctilucent clouds and sometimes even auroras. In this short movie you can see Belarusian landscapes, castles and churches in unusual point of view: under the light of the night sky, in embrace of stars.

Enjoy!

I have posted this previously, but thought it might appeal to some on its first anniversary having been captured on Valentine's Day, 14th Feb 2012.

Within Two Worlds

Post by goldpaintphoto » Fri Feb 22, 2013 1:53 pm

After 3 years of capturing the night sky in various locations across the Pacific Northwest, I present my latest time-lapse film, 'Within Two Worlds.' This film depicts an alternate perspective by giving us the illusion of times movement, signifying a beginning and end within a world of constant contradiction. It appears you are traveling in the midst of a dream, half-sleeping, half-waking, and touching the arch connecting heaven and earth.

A Boulder Side of Venus

Post by pcully » Mon Mar 04, 2013 1:11 am



All photography by Patrick Cullis - http://www.pcully.blogspot.com
Music - "4th Fret Reprise" by Excavacations.

Finally started messing around with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and am incredibly happy with the results. Film compiles video and time-lapse photography of Venus during her many amazing conjunctions in early 2012 on her way to the last Transit of Venus for a century. Scenes and dates are identified in the credits and include the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus setting behind the moonlit Flatirons through a telescope, Venus with the Pleiades star cluster, and a quick look at the Venus and an airplane transiting the Sun together.

Ice in the Night
First released at CEDIC 2013 conference in Linz. Thanks to the organizing team for the opportunity and David Malin for letting me use his pc.
I captured these timelapses in the cold winter nights and sunsets of January and February 2013, in the Italian Alps and Apennines. Some nice location include Como Lake and Varese Lake, and the snowy grass of Pian dell'Armà, where many amateur astronomers meet in the new Moon weekends.
Many timelapsing techniques has been used such as dolly, panning, hdr. Three DSLR has been used with many lenses (all the data in in the panel at the end).

Compilation of different moments collected during many observation nights during last 12 months.
The sky quality is quite average (as in any town crowded locations), timelapse technique is far from perfection, but I hope you can feel the ambience of night observations.

Hidden Treasures of the Carina Nebula

This video is a tour of the Great Nebula in Carina (NGC 3372) in both optical and infrared light. The music was composed specifically for this animation by my longtime friend Thomas Regin.
Make sure you switch to 1080p HD and watch it in full screen, and turn the sound on. Enjoy :)

This majestic nebula is one of the largest nebulae in the sky and lies about 7,500 light years distant in the Southern constellation of Carina, The Keel. Several star clusters containing some of the brightest and most massive stars known are found here, including the extremely luminous hypergiant star Eta Carinae - one of the prime candidates for the next supernova explosion in our galaxy.

Traditional images of the Carina Nebula taken in visible light primarily display the striking magenta colour from glowing Hydrogen gas, as well as large dark obscuring clouds of dust. But infrared light penetrates these clouds better and allows for a deep peek into the heart of the nebula, revealing complex details and thousands of young stars that are otherwise completely invisible. These stars shine primarily in the infrared and appear as golden red in this image. Only a minority of these are even visible in traditional images.
