Description

A Winter Night’s Sky – A Time Lapse Project

I had three hours working on a DSO before it’s gone for the year so since I had all that time I decided to use the Sky Watcher All View mount and the Canon T3i and do a time lapse. I shot 220 images over 2 hours and 8 minutes, shooting from the West to the Southwest. I hope you enjoy this view of the sky from where I live.
