You're welcome, Dustin! I try to notify submitters of Asterisk postings, but obviously don't always manage to do so. I'm glad you found it! Your video made me miss looking through a microscope a bit.

Thanks,
I love microscopes and telescopes. Both take us to places in the universe we wouldn't see otherwise.
It was the video on APOD "Wonders of the Universe" http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap110418.html
that gave me the same sense of wonder and scale as our crystal video.
That sense of awe is was what prompted me to send the crystals link in to APOD.
Thanks again,
Dustin

Hi All,

Here is a compilation of videos I have put together - all taken at the Australia Telescope Compact Array near Narrabri, New South Wales, Australia.

Best regards,

Emil Lenc.

Emil, thanks for posting that! Seeing the movements of the telescopes reminds me of corps de ballet. What are the different birds in the video? Inquiring owls would like to know!

Love the ending, too; made me laugh! That was not what I was expecting to see!

These were all taken while I was "Duty Astronomer" at the ATCA (it's kind of like Jury Duty but for astronomers i.e. we take turns to donate a week of our time to help support other observers). Being here for extended periods and at all hours of the day and night you tend to notice all kinds of wildlife around (and in) the observatory itself :-)

The birds are known as the Apostlebird (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostlebird) because they were believed to form groups of 12 (although this number actually varies). They're not the prettiest of birds around here but they are very sociable within their groups and can be quite comical to watch - they typically huddle together in their groups and often chatter amongst themselves whilst foraging for food or joining us for breakfast :-)

The frogs are a constant and welcome companion during observing nights. Many of them tend to reside inside pot plants that are in the control room and they tend to just "hang out" waiting for other insects to walk past. You tend to see the frogs elsewhere in the control room i.e. on walls, sitting on powerpoints, cables and other bits of equipment. There are also large geckos and mice in particular are a bit of a problem (eating on cabling) ... and on the odd occasions snakes (one was found "in" a toilet a few months back! ... presumably looking for frogs). There are of course plenty of cockatoos and various types of parrots ... which unfortunately I haven't yet had a chance to video during my current Duty Astronomer session (I'm still at the observatory so when I get a chance I have to hunt a few down with my camera ... they are usually most active in the mornings and evenings but I've be stuck with my job during these periods recently).

Oh, have to rush to set up another observation ....

Cheers,

Emil Lenc.

I've updated my video "Australia Telescope Compact Array and surrounds" to fix some of the flickering in the time-lapse shots, added a bit more wildlife (including obligatory cockatoos taking a hayride on the telescope) and some additional time-lapse snippets:

Montage of Milky Way footage shot by me between October 2010 to July 2011.

Some of the time lapse footage is motion controlled with the use of the Dynamic Perceptions Stage Zero dolly system

The Zodiacal light is visible at the 1:11 mark. That was shot in late February.

This morning at 1:30 eastern time I made this timelapse of an aurora borealis on the ground of a small public observatory called Mont-Cosmos here in Quebec, Canada.
